FRINGE 2016 – Amazing Drumming Monkeys – “The Tree Show” – 3K

By Julia Cudsi Despite this act having been around for some years, I have never quite gotten around to seeing The Amazing Drumming Monkeys, so I was very excited to finally take my brood along to see this show. Very much a “what you see is what you get” style show, this performance melds impressive puppetry …

Fringe 2016 – Yeti’s Demon Dive Bar – The Garden of Unearthly Delights – The Deluxe– 4K

By Tom Eckert Yeti’s Demon Dive Bar, a production from EastEnd Cabaret and Dead Man Comedy who also brought us East End Caberet, presents us with another exercise in the delightfully absurd. You soon give up on following the narrative of this show for, whilst it is there, it swings so rapidly between the earnest and …

The Garden of Unearthly Delights 2016 Preview

By Peter Maddern No matter the sometimes lame efforts of the Fringe Office to promote otherwise (where is this year’s street parade going?), The Garden of Unearthly Delights is well entrenched as the spiritual home of the Adelaide Fringe. As the years have gone on, so it seems the Garden continues to grow, now nearly …

FRINGE 2015: La Soirée – Garden of Unearthly Delights: Aurora Spiegeltent – 5K

The beauty of a variety show is that with the combination of acts, you will never get bored. One performance flows into the next and each provides its own flavour of entertainment. It’s possible that not every act will be to the taste of every audience member, but wait five minutes and the next one …

FRINGE 2015: Axis of Awesome – Garden of Unearthly Delights: Aurora Spiegeltent – 4K

The Axis of Awesome haven’t been seen in Adelaide for several years, but they make a welcome return in the Garden of Unearthly Delights this Fringe. Their shtick remains the same – with Benny’s height still the butt of many of the jokes – but they manage to keep it feeling fresh, so why change …

FRINGE 2015: Puddles Pity Party – Garden of Unearthly Delights: Le Cascadeur – 5K

Puddles enters the stage with his baggage – both physically and metaphorically – and produces an hour of entertainment that is a magnificent blend of sorrow and joy. His voice is powerful, beautiful and mesmerising and the songs he performs have been chosen well, displaying his impressive vocal range and engaging the audience. They are easily recognisable, a …

FRINGE 2015 – Le Gateau Chocolat – Icons – Garden / Deluxe – 1.5K

I think it a stretch to describe Le Gateau as a drag queen act, I think a man in drag would be sufficient. 1.5K

Fringe 2015 – Garden of Unearthly Delights Opening

Last night the Garden of Unearthly Delights opened its doors to the public for the first time in the 2015 season. Aesthetically not a huge amount has changed from previous years, the layout and venues remained largely the same, however there were some beautiful new additions. The incorporation of the trees in the park has …

FRINGE – Die Roten Punkte – Kunst Rock (Art Rock) – Garden of Unearthly Delights – 4.5K

The utterly dysfunctional siblings Otto and Astrid Rot from Berlin, Germany are Die Roten Punkte (The Red Dots). Their most recent and third album, Kunst Rock (Art Rock) is an unbelievable well put together, timed and side splittingly hilarious caberet rock concert and only for a very short season at the Adelaide Fringe after sell …
