Love Factually | Melbourne Fringe Festival

Love Factually | Melbourne Fringe Festival

Love Factually is a comedy show that takes easy aim at the fetid honeypot of gross sex stories that the animal world provides. If you’re after anything more daring, this is not your scene. Because that’s the problem, really. Love Factually is a show about weird sex. More specifically, it’s about weird animal sex (because weird […]

Review: Sitcom Theme Song Singalong (and Trivia) | Melbourne Fringe Festival

If you appreciate a rockin’ seventies moustache, repeatedly singing Believe It or Not and hating on Jon Cryer, your tastes will be rewarded with lollies at Sitcom Theme Song Singalong (and Trivia). Yes folks, you can seriously make back your ticket money in chocolate here. Sitcom is a snappy, well-rehearsed show run by a retro-tastic, […]

Review: People Crying ‘Adam Knox’ As They Leap From Planes | Melbourne Fringe Festival

Review: People Crying ‘Adam Knox’ As They Leap From Planes | Melbourne Fringe Festival

The most important thing one can say about Adam Knox is that he does not come prepared. While his show People Crying ‘Adam Knox’ as They Leap from Planes does establish that Knox is has a good stage presence and comedic potential, he just about tosses it all away every time he turns to his […]

Review: Sabrina D’Angelo in Body Poet | Melbourne International Comedy Festival

It’s safe to say there are few comedy shows in the festival that come close to Sabrina D’Angelo’s Body Poet. It’s a strange and somewhat uncomfortable mix of performance art and abstract comedy that has the potential to go somewhere but is stranded by a lack of structure or storyline.

Review: Sammy J in Potentially | Melbourne International Comedy Festival

Review: Sammy J in Potentially | Melbourne International Comedy Festival

It’s hard not to like Sammy J. He’s got a bird-like appeal that makes his every movement slightly comical on its own. And in a show without his trademark puppets, Potentially still shows Sammy J can hold his own.

Review: Slutmonster and Friends | Melbourne International Comedy Festival

If you’ve ever wondered what it might feel like to be slapped in the face with a dildo, Slutmonster goes some of the way to making that a viable possibility. Thankfully in this instance, the dildo-slapping experience is happening to somebody else. Literally.

Review: Arj Barker in Go Time | Melbourne International Comedy Festival

Review: Arj Barker in Go Time | Melbourne International Comedy Festival

Here’s a lesson to remember: never go and see a show thinking ‘I really wanted to see this guy in my university days’. You’ll regret it. Welcome to Arj Barker’s Go Time, the so-so comedy show that makes you feel like you’re watching a used-car salesman put sawdust in a gearbox. The aim, of course, […]

Review: First Dog on the Moon – How to Draw Cartoobs and Other Typos | Melbourne Fringe Festival 2012

Review: First Dog on the Moon – How to Draw Cartoobs and Other Typos | Melbourne Fringe Festival 2012

First Dog will always hold a special place in my heart, most noticeably because my heart is full of other cartoon animals who appreciate interpretive dance. He’s in good company. Still, my appreciation of his show has a lot to do with the fact that First Dog employs Smart Humour for Intelligent People, and these people have […]

Review: The Trial and Death of Socrates (No Relation) | Melbourne Fringe Festival 2012

Review: The Trial and Death of Socrates (No Relation) | Melbourne Fringe Festival 2012

There are some comedy shows that aim to dazzle an audience with wit and brilliance. Then there are others that slap you in the face with the same resounding smack a wet turkey might make when it’s swung against your tender, well-defined cheekbone—it injures your dignity, but you laugh hard anyway. The Life and Death […]

Review: How to Get Rich | Melbourne Fringe Festival 2012

Review: How to Get Rich | Melbourne Fringe Festival 2012

This strong, intelligent one-woman show is like a warm hug from a friendly acquaintance. It’s a little unexpected at first, but something to which you’ll eventually succumb with an easy acquiescence. How to Get Rich carefully balances on the see-saw of a strange dichotomy; it’s inventive but still manages to sit firmly within the safety […]
