FRINGE CABARET – Triskster – La Boheme – 4K

2017 logoBy Peter Maddern

“Bums on seats! Get me bums on seats” That’s the cry from all Fringe performers this year. Brad Storer goes further in his show opener by putting his bum in our faces. While the rest of him is baby like naked, thankfully this part of his anatomy adorns a snugly pair of Aussiebums as he ensures you won’t easily forget how you came to again hear Kate Bush’s Babooshka.

Storer, presenting as if touched by the devil, a reject audition for another Batman movie, a Heath Ledger reincarnate, with a white painted face and white shirt (when dressed) delivers on the staples of modern cabaret.

It’s all deliciously camp, catastrophic and calculating and sure to delight after a night out, especially with a full house – so give him one and come out of the dark and into his dark side for hour this weekend.
