Closure at a Self-Serve Checkout
8pm Thursday, March 2 and Friday, March 3
If you’ve ever been ghosted by a Gemini, burned by yet another boy with a mustache, or played the little-known game BitLife in a depressive state and wondered if it would make for a very niche joke in a comedy cabaret show, this is the show for you.
Closure at a Self-Serve Checkout is a ridiculous, raucous, and some may say chaotic one-woman comedy cabaret; a collection of stand-up monologues and witty songs performed by Bobbie and her piano; a show about taking our depressed and broken hearts of the past and finding ways to move on and, most importantly, laugh about it all together.
So come along and enjoy some chaotic catharsis by laughing at some silly little songs about our silly little lives.
Tickets: $30/27 at adelaidefringe.com.au, or $80 for a meal and a show
Dodgy Drag Divas
7.15pm Saturday, March 4
Adelaide, are you ready?
Come and join star-spangled, sequin-studded divas for a night of camp mockery of divas through the ages – because not one looks like the real deal.
Musical stylings from the 80s through to current times, you’re bound to leave the show laughing, maybe even crying.
Tickets: $50 at adelaidefringe.com.au.
Funny Adelaide on Tour
8pm Friday, March 10
There’s no place like home, so Funny Adelaide is loading up the campervan and getting around to some suburbs and towns near you (if you live near the ones they’re going to).
On board they will have some of the funniest stand-ups from around the Fringe, including Brisbane’s Shayne Hunter, who is to hecklers what Ivan Milat is to backpackers; Fabien Clark, who has been making SA laugh for two decades; Lauren Thiel, who will tell you in intimate detail what’s happening in her life in the most hilarious way; and Jono Makai, who is super handsome, witty and writing this.
Get ready to laugh your sensational butt off.
Tickets: $25/21 at adelaidefringe.com.au, or $70 for a meal and a show
Granny Flaps: Hot off the chest tour
8pm Friday, March 17
It’s a brand spanking new show for the award-winning comedy act Granny Flaps.
This ukulele lady will have you laughing from beginning to end as she explores everything from love and lust in your golden years to the joys of a Friday night in your 20s.
“If you want to laugh a lot, be thoroughly entertained, and are not offended by the F word, then this show is for you.” –Broadway World
