The Golden Phung sells out!

Golden PhungAward-winning sketch comedy troupe; The Golden Phung  are back at the Fringe Festival with a delectable smorgasbord of brand spanking new sketches.

Originally a down-to-earth group from Adelaide, they seem to have lost all sense of morality and artistic integrity and have sold out, not their tickets, but their very souls! They’ve traded their joke books for cheque books, their yucks for bucks, their cavalier jests for caviar vests…

Roy Phung and Eddie Morrisson of The Golden Phung joined Bill Walter to tell us why they’re selling out!

A bigger Fringe is coming to town

Sadly it’s not February yet, but that doesn’t mean we can’t talk about the Fringe in September (because we love the Fringe). The Fringe’s popularity has risen over 60 per cent over the past three years, attracting over 1.5 million Fringe goers!

CEO of the Adelaide Fringe, Greg Clarke, spoke to Tim Brunero to give us a little taste of what to expect next year and the fascinating talents he found during his travels to the National Arts Festival in South Africa and the Edinborough Fringe.

Greg also revealed to us that the Fringe has been extended to 4 weeks and is starting a week earlier, making this one bigger and better than before.

Perhaps you would like to perform at next year’s Fringe so why not register now before it’s too late. You have until Wednesday 10 October 2012 to enter.
