Award-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!
The Adelaide Fringe opens tonight in spectacular fashion as the Fringe Parade lights up King William Street. The Fringe promises that the thousands of people who come along to the city tonight will be treated to a wonderful array of stunning floats and costumes, all around the theme of ‘Lit from Within’
Sounds fantastic! But what if you can’t see?
One organisation, Access2Arts, is dedicated to bringing arts events, including very visual events like the Fringe Parade, to people with visual impairment.
And tonight they’re partnering with us here at Radio Adelaide for a “live audio description” of the Parade. Audio describer Eliza Lovell and vision impaired person Joanna Chua joined Bill in the studio.
Have you ever caused a ruckus in a cab? Perhaps you pulled a runner after a long night? Well former taxi driver Mark Martin might be telling your embarrassing tale to the masses. Martin is bringing his hilarious show to the Adelaide Fringe later this month and he joined Bill Walter to discuss taxi and comedian life.
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.
