Top Picks for Adelaide Fringe (no. 4)

The tents are packed away, the food trucks have rolled on, and the Adelaide Fringe is done for another year. What a year! I feel like it really flew by this time. I’m feeling pretty forlorn about it all but luckily I’m going on my honeymoon in 2 weeks which cheers me up! Hooray! I know it’s all over so you can’t go and see these shows, but I saw two excellent shows on the very last night of Fringe that I want to tell you about. If you get to see them elsewhere then you absolutely should!



I saw this show last year at Tuxedo Cat when it was in development and it was really great to see where it had evolved to. The hour flew by with pretty much non-stop laughter as well as some disgusted groans as Trygve mimed out some slightly disturbing scenarios – which were still hilarious. There is plenty of audience participation ¬†which is fun and not terrifying, and it’s amazing how well the scenes are brought to life. Very inspiring for me as an aspiring clown and I highly recommend it!

Kraken is playing next in London…hopefully it’ll be back in Oz soon!¬†



I (and tons of other people) first saw Puddles performing a cover of “Royals” on Youtube with Scott Bradlee and the Postmodern Jukebox and was so intrigued. I had no idea why he was dressed as a clown or what was going on but I loved it anyway. So when I saw he was doing a show here I knew I had to see it. The show involves Puddles singing many a sad and beautiful song, yet the show was so funny and heart warming. I walked away with such a fuzzy warm feeling and I have no idea how that happened. Fantastic.
