If like us you're a fan of Perth's annual FRINGE WORLD Festival, then we have some exciting news.
The award-winning team from NY Events, a Perth Hills-based business specialising in Comedy events are bringing five unique fringe acts to the Hills during FRINGE WORLD Festival 2020, and a free street performer festival called 'Karnival in the Hills' in January and February.
With all five acts showing at the historic Kalamunda Hotel, these performers will have you laughing till you cry or at least till your stomach aches!
BURLESQUE - Smooth Criminals
Date: Saturday, 18 January, 8:00 pm
Class is in session! Learn about some of the most infamous crimes and criminals in world history, with their stories told using the art of burlesque, cabaret and tease. These (mostly accurate) retellings, guided by fabulous MC Foxxxy Curves, will have you learning a thing or two -- and not just about history!
COMEDY - 6056
Date: Sunday, 19 January 2020, 8:00pm
After selling out 2017, 2018 and 2019 - 6056 is back by popular demand. With all-new jokes, 6056 is bigger and better than ever. Cameron McLaren delivers an hour of stand up on all things growing up in Midland.
COMEDY - Squirldog Pride Parade
Date: Saturday 15 February, 6:00pm
The world has lost the plot! Constant arguments about climate change, public bathrooms and if a Straight Pride Parade is the most ridiculous concept ever. Luckily Squirly is here with his completely unnecessary and hilariously illogical commentary on everything. The show for those who like laughter with their comedy. Squirldog Pride Parade answers one question, where's my Parade???
COMEDY - Alli Butler: 40-Year-Old Popstar
Date: Saturday 15th February, 8:00pm
Alli Butler woke up the other day and discovered she was 40. That was unexpected. Last time she looked, she was 20. How did becoming a nurse, getting married, having a kid and finding a psychiatric facility for her husband eat up so many days? To get back on her path to mega-celebrity, Alli flees the city and returns to the small country town where she was born to launch her pop career from there!
COMEDY - 2 Half Men: Glenn & Jez
Date: Saturday 15 February, 9:15 pm
Creators of The Nasty Show Australia and (never ever) Award Nominated Comedians Glenn Grimwood & Jez Watts have all-new jokes for 2020. An hour of dirty standup from 2 barely functioning half-men.
FREE COMMUNITY EVENT - Karnival in the Hills
Date: Saturday 8 February, 4.00pm Location: Central Mall, Kalamunda If you're looking for something a little more fringe kid-friendly, then look no further than Karnival in the Hills.
