FRINGE 2019 – Yummy Deluxe – 4.5K – The Garden of Unearthly Delights

Yummy took the Adelaide Fringe by storm in 2018 and now they’re back with a bigger and better show than before.

Yummy Deluxe brings back most of your Yummy favourites (Karen from Finance, the much-loved MC from last year, was unfortunately missing) for a night of fun and frivolity. Some numbers were more bizzare than others, some slower, some more poignant – but nonetheless all numbers were entertaining. Valerie Hex was a fantastic MC, getting the crowd ready for some fantastic performances, and participating in a few of the best ones herself.

MVPs of the night were Hannie Helsden, queen of the hoop, and Zelia Rose, one of the world’s best burlesque stars. However, all of the Yummy case brought something magical to the stage, eliciting laughs, whoops, and cheers from the audience throughout the entire show.

The reason this isn’t five stars is that there were a few numbers from last year’s show that were included, where there was space to showcase new, exciting work – and two of them were the weakest numbers of the show. It was a shame, as with such talented performers, there was opportunity here for exciting new content.

However, this is a small gripe. Overall, Yummy Deluxe is a fantastic night out and you won’t regret purchasing a ticket. Get along for a night of fun, dancing, and talented performances.
