Just a quick round-up on what’s been going on – firstly, there’s a new short episode of some of the running about I’ve been doing for Fringeworld 2018 over on the SoundCloud page:
Some of the recommendations / heard good things about that I have for the #FringeWorld week-or-so to come (and check listings, as some of these may end very soon!) include:
- Séance | An Immersive Experience
- Ray Bradshaw: Deaf Comedy Fam
- Djuki Mala
- Zoe Coombs Marr
- Simon Taylor – Happy Times
- Laura Davis – Cake in the Rain
- Goto Hell
- Bad Luck Cabaret
- WE ARE IAN
- Lucy Peach My Greatest Period Ever
- Fleabag (I’ve seen a few episodes of the TV show and this is going to be some very bleak comedy)
- Anything showing at the Blue Room Theatre or Four5Nine venue over at the Rosemount Hotel (which is kind of a free ticket-experience itself, just arriving and hanging around the terrifying waiting area, quite frankly).
The Perth Festival season is also underway, and while I’m sad that Kardajala Kirridarra can’t make it over due to flooding in the Northern Territory, there’s a number of shows I’ll be reviewing including:
- Il N’Est Pas Encore Minuit
- Farewell to Paper
- The Far Side of the Moon
- Ben Folds throwing paper planes around because he can – and did you know that Tim Minchin did One Angry Dwarf with him over at the Sydney Opera House? I don’t think we’ll be that lucky over here in Perth:
I’ve also started off February by beginning some Skeptic Book Club Recommendations over on the Curiouser and Curiouser column; one of the first podcasts for the year is with the author of How To Be Reasonable, which you can find on the Token Skeptic Podcast.
If I have any energy left after all of this, there may be more podcasts on the way, along with a few more randomised wild-card selection reviews of what’s going on around FringeWorld, so any recommendations welcomed. Just hit me up on the comments.
