FRINGE 2016: Amos Gill – Netflix and Gill – 4.5K

9556_AmosFest.Headshot.2016_EFUL_GUIDEMore commonly known from hit107’s breakfast show, Amos Gill steps away from the radio and presents his comedy show Netflix and Chill for the 2016 Adelaide Fringe. Born and raised in South Australia, Gill has earned many nominations for his past standup comedy work including Best Emerging Comedian at the 2013 Melbourne Comedy Festival and the 2014 MCIF Best Newcomer Award.

With the title suggesting a play off of the term ‘Netflix and Chill’, the show mainly consists of uncensored sexual humour elaborating on his hilarious sexual experiences. Contrastingly, Gill also finds comedy in other topics with stories from getting haters in radio, looking like Jon Snow, and getting his sparkly ASOS shoes stolen.

Gill cleverly segues between stories, transitioning well into comedy and jokes regarding heavier current news topics such as the global refugee crisis and South Australia’s nuclear waste debate. Although very opinionated, Gill ingeniously find comedy out of the more serious subject matters. Therefore, it is better to come in with an open mind to fully enjoy the show.

With constant laughter throughout the one hour show, Gill continually proves his comedic talent with raw comedy will leave laughing in your seats whilst making you think ‘Did he really just say that?’
Fortunately, Amos Gill is set to become a familiar voice in Adelaide as he can be heard every morning during hit107’s breakfast radio program, Cat and Amos. Filled with crude humour that you would not see on his radio show, Amos Gill continues his show Netflix and Gill for the Adelaide Fringe at the Rhino Room with his final show on March 12th.
