The Golden Phung host Adelaide Comedy’s 1st “Sketch Comedy Night” Tues 17th at The Arkaba

Award–winning sketch comedy troupe; The Golden Phung…are back!

This time they host Adelaide Comedy’s Sketch Night alongside other local sketch comedy troupes; Gravity Boots and The Ridiculous Files.

The Golden Phung will be performing a selection of their favourite sketches, some new, some old, some very old.. As well as unleashing several new sketches into the comedy mix extravaganza!

After closing the book on this year’s 5 star Adelaide Fringe success; Golden Phung’s Encyclopedia of Everything, the team have combined their comedy powers again once more to save sketch comedy in Adelaide!

During the 2010 Adelaide Fringe Festival our self-titled debut show had a sell-out season, receiving wide critical praise: most notably a 4 and half star review from The Advertiser. 2011 saw another sell-out season at the Adelaide Fringe Festival and our Melbourne International Comedy Festival debut (4 stars – Herald Sun). The Golden Phung has gained the support of a growing number of fans as well as a handful of accolades.

Unfortunately, it seems home-grown live sketch comedy has become a something of a rarity, and in a city so ripe in culture, stand-up and creativity; the seemingly forgotten art of sketch comedy deserves a much more fruitful life.

Adelaide Comedy’s Sketch Night on July 17th hopes to change all that. The Golden Phung, with help from fellow local sketch comedy troupes; Gravity Boots and The Ridiculous Files will be doing their part to make sure sketch comedy thrives in Adelaide.

Remember, you’re no one unless you’ve been Phung’d!!!
