Kevin Kropinyeri (VIC/SA) is Australia’s
premier Aboriginal comedy star, a high energy whirlwind that will have you
holding your sides laughing, as he shares tales of growing up, marriage and the
particular, absurd challenges of life as an Aboriginal Australian family man.
Shiralee Hood (VIC/ACT/WA) has survived the Canberra bush fires, lived next to the Tent Embassy's sacred fire outside Parliament House in Canberra and had her front teeth knocked out swinging on a Hill's Hoist (which is about as Aussie as it gets).
Matt Ford (QLD) is the latest in a squad of
teenage prodigies rapidly establishing themselves as the next generation of
Australian standup, Matt has worked with the likes of Doug Stanhope, Tom
Gleeson, and Tom Ballard.
“This show is hilarious. Belly aching,
cheek hurting, hilarious… See it. See it. See it. 5 stars”
“…three of the best comedians I’ve seen
this Fringe. 4 stars”
Rip It Up
“… gut-busting, laugh-out-loud, top-shelf
Fringe entertainment” -
“His disarming warmth and cheer draw the
audience in as he plays with black and white stereotypes… Kropinyeri brings
this far-flung Australia into the heart of the city, and we laugh while sharing
his relish for indigenous life. Deadly.”
“(Matt) had the relaxed, laid-back presence of
a headliner who’s been doing this for the last 10 years”
Tom Gleeson (The Project, Just For Laughs)
