FRINGE 2019 – Fringe Wives Club: Glittergrass – 4K – Gluttony

The incredibly talented Fringe Wives Club have taken the past two Adelaide Fringe festivals by storm with their first show, Glittery Clittery (also playing at this year’s Fringe, and worth a look). Now they’re back with their second show, Glittergrass, and with two new Fringe Wives to boot. A self-professed “feminist hootanany”, Glittergrass is a country music extravaganza …

FRINGE 2019 – Garry Starr Conquers Troy – 4K – Gluttony (Masonic Hall)

Garry Starr completely exceeded all my expectations when I saw his last show, Garry Starr Performs Everything, at last year’s Fringe – he was a truly unique comedian and an intelligent one to boot. Garry Starr Conquers Troy takes the classics and reworks them for the “low-brow” (modern) audiences. Garry Star – skilled actor, or “skactor” – …

Fringe 2018: Betty Grumble: Love and Anger – 4.5K, GOUD

How to describe Betty Grumble: Love and Anger? Here’s a few buzzwords: controversial, inspiring, confronting, hilarious, thought-provoking, sexual, opinionated, and unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. Betty is inspired by Valerie Solanis’ Scum Manifesto, and weaves her way through cabaret, poetry, comedy, and even art. Not for the faint-of-heart, you’ll see every inch of Betty’s …

Fringe 2018: Shitfaced Shakespeare: Romeo and Juliet – 5K, Gluttony

One iconic play. Five actors. A shit-ton of booze. Shitfaced Shakespeare might be exactly as it says on the tin, but that doesn’t mean its unimaginative. A fantastic mix of improvisation, constructed comedy, and theatre, this production of Romeo and Juliet is unlike anything you’ve ever seen. On this particular night, Romeo was the intoxicated …

Fringe 2018: James Donald Forbes McCann: McCann-dle in the Wind – 4.5K, Raj House

James McCann tackles everything from Catholicism, to sex clowns, to call centres (or, as he terms them, ‘hope graveyards’) in his new show, “James Donald Forbes McCann: McCann-dle in the Wind”. A favourite in Adelaide’s comedy scene, McCann doesn’t hold back as he dissects his upcoming marriage, his previous (depressing) work history, and the newly-found …

Fringe 2018: Undercover Refugee – 4K – The Producers

Sit back as Karen and David take you through a lighthearted, yet very real, tale of Karen’s work with Syrian refugees in Lesbos, and in transit across Europe into Germany. Part theatre, part comedy, Karen weaves a tale of the social media obsessed volunteers, kindhearted refugees, mafia bosses, and sleazy and racist policemen that she …
