Adelaide Fringe Review: Daniel Muggleton is so much more than Mr White Guy

March 15, 2021

Daniel Muggleton leaps out onto the stage at Adelaide Fringe, both noticeable and memorable for his bright red tracksuit. A fine fashion choice? Probably not, but if you Google “tracksuit comedian”, he is on the top of the list. So, it’s perhaps a wise one. The venue (Gluttony‘s Piglet) is probably not the best available […]

Adelaide Fringe Review: Hugh Sheridan’s HUGHMAN hits the right notes

March 15, 2021

The open-air MOA mini stadium at the rear of Gluttony was literally packed to the rafters. A dedicated crowd of followers of Hugh Sheridan were there to watch him strut his stuff in HUGHMAN.

Adelaide Fringe Review: Yas Queen belts out the show tunes in Leather Lungs

March 11, 2021

My closing memory of Yas Queen is a rousing rendition of Queen’s “Somebody to Love” with the audience standing and cheering a stunning performance. The journey along the way was a roller coaster ride of emotion. The opening number was also strong, but a number of factors threatened to derail the show. There was the […]

There was a good crowd in the Magic Mirror Spiegeltent for the final weekend performance of Rouge. Despite the increasing talk of COVID-19 in the press, audiences remained undaunted and expectant.

Adelaide Fringe Review: Barbaroi is fast paced energetic physical circus – Gluttony (16.02.20)

February 19, 2020

Walking into Barbaroi is like walking into a familiar street scene from an early 80s movie. The Ukiyo circus tent is set up in an industrial way, with lighting that makes it feel dark and mysterious.

Photo Gallery: 360 Allstars shine at the Adelaide Fringe

March 17, 2019

There are 360 degrees in a circle and this performance is full of “all-round” “Allstars” (get it?). This show is fast paced and an enjoyable demonstration of bike riding, freestyle rapping, drumming, basketball tricks, cyr wheel and more. The music and lighting give extra energy to an already energised group of performers. The added bonus […]

Adelaide Fringe Review: The Naked Magicians expertly deliver exactly as advertised

March 5, 2018

The Naked Magicians are just exactly as you would expect – two guys who strip down and perform magic tricks to a mostly female audience. This is no place for a guy’s night out, but there are probably plenty of “girl’s nights” in the audience. Endlessly touring Australia, the pair just wrapped up a run […]

February 29, 2016

Matt Tarrant is straight up with the crowd gathered in The Octagon tent on a warm Sunday evening; he’s loved magic ever since he was a kid wanting to be pulled up on stage by the first magician he’d ever seen perform. His Adelaide Fringe Festival show Honestly Dishonest is about perhaps giving that feeling to any […]
