Fringe 2018: Garry Starr Performs Everything – 5K – The Producers


By Amy.

I can’t say I was expecting much of Garry’s show when I walked into the Warehouse at the Producers, but I can say that categorically it is the funniest show I’ve seen at the 2018 Adelaide Fringe.

Garry Starr decides that theatre is dying, and its his job to save it. Performing everything from cirque, to Shakespeare, to slapstick, Starr proves himself to be a master of every craft. Performing every bit of theatre with bravado, intelligence, and a little bit of low-brow humour. Starr is clearly a talented and dedicated man; every aspect of theatre, song, and physical comedy is attempted with nothing less than the utmost energy and enthusiasm.

Starr cleverly worked audience participation into the mix; hot tip – it doesn’t matter if you sit at the front or not, you’ll likely still be called on to participate, and honestly if you go along with it, you’ll have so much fun. All of the above creates a genuinely, hilariously great show. Starr says that this was his first solo outing, but you wouldn’t believe it – this is comedy at its best.

What more is there to say? This show is fantastic. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry with laughter, you’ll walk away wanting to save theatre again and again with Garry Starr.
