John Bennett: Fire in the Meth Lab

John Bennett: Fire in the Meth Lab

John has been around with this performance for a few years now and it’s a pity he’s not getting larger local crowds, considering his tale is local. Extremely well performed, the story of how a fire in a meth lab was in some way a good thing is well worth hearing....
Astonish: Sense of Wonder

Astonish: Sense of Wonder

Robbie Kay put together a slick performance. Tied in a dream and some family history; he weaves an enthralling story including the audience. Starting with a trick using a mobile phone from an audience member, to show how you can do tricks with modern technology. Then...
Rhino Room Late Show: How did Fleety get back into SA?

Rhino Room Late Show: How did Fleety get back into SA?

No idea how Fleety got back into SA. I’m pretty sure we, as in The Adelaide Show, shut down his visa a few years ago but there he was. Emcee. He promptly set up a great laid back atmosphere, which was useful because this show gave Return of the King a run for its...

Alicia was a welcoming sight, dancing away at the front of the cosy Nook as we filled the room. A bubbly Gen-Y, describing herself as a woman man-child, put on a fine show with plenty of audience involvement, the sort of involvement you want. You’re there to help her,...

PHAT CAVE LATE NIGHT COMEDY: Sides were hurting

They say “What happens in the Cave…stays in the cave” and Mick the MC is probably so grateful of that. The show started late, which wasn’t an issue, there’s a nearby bar however that sign, a sign I’m not sure Mick saw coming, was for a long and I imagine difficult...
The World I Live In: Can’t have too much Lewis Garnham

The World I Live In: Can’t have too much Lewis Garnham

Opening with “Melbourne is a great city” was an interesting way to get every Adelaidian’s attention from the get go. Guests were transfixed, FUIC was ready to throw, lynch mobs organised. Seconds later the audience was disarmed as Lewis explains his life during a trip...
