The Fringe is nearly here, so it’s time to pick up those Fringe guides and give them a good read.
This morning Angus Randall spoke to Georgie Carroll, who migrated to Australia as a nurse in 2009, before picking up comedy later in the same year. After winning Adelaide Comedy’s comedian of the year for 2012, this Fringe Georgie is putting on her first solo show, “Nurse Case Scenario”.
A family drama centred around the plight of the giant cuttlefish in the Spencer Gulf after a mining company decides to build a desalination plant. That’s the setting for a new play “Sepia” at this year’s Fringe.
Breakfast’s Tim Brunero was joined in the studio by playwright Emily Steel and actor Matthew Gregan.
*No cuttlefish were harmed in the making of this interview.
Growing up in a town of comedy like Montreal can mean you become a heartless, laughter hating monster. Not so for DeAnne Smith, tie wearer and comedian extroadinaire. DeAnne is travelling Adelaide at the moment performing a fringe show from March 5th until March 18th. She spoke with Tim about being a comedian and her new show Livin the Sweet Life.
Ever wanted to know whether Canadians are as funny as they sound? Keep in mind that they would probably ask the same question of us.
However, we are the ones who have lured them to the country with our own cultural trap – The Fringe!
Comedy group The Three Canadians are at this year’s Adelaide Fringe where spectators are free to poke and prod them until they make us laugh.
Tim Brunero spoke to Eric Amber to find out about their show.
He shot to fame as one of the most popular performers of 2010 on the hit ABC music quiz show Spicks and Specks. Armed with his huge, contagious smile, his famous ‘one finger method’ and his 1981 Hammond Aurora Classic, the affable and charismatic Mr. Barry Morgan, as described in his self bio, puts the Boss in Bossa Nova.
He’s currently in the city for the Adelaide Fringe Festival, with his shows airing all the way through to the 18th of March and joins Tim Brunero in the studio this morning.
Funny man Xavier Michelides is a 2011 Golden Gibbo Award Nominee, has appeared on Rove and is in town for the Adelaide Fringe Festival.
With only three shows remaining at this year’s festival, beginning today and ending on the third of March, you’ll have to be quick to snap up tickets.
