"BROAD is Quinn's first original show in four years, and it has rightly already received accolades including nominations for the Most Outstanding Show and the Golden Gibbo Award at MICF 2022. Her observational comedy is laugh out loud funny, and there's no questioning Quinn's talent as a singer/songwriter."
"All of the music and lyrics are original creations and delivered with an amused, naughty satire that keeps the audience laughing from beginning to end. It is an exhausting hour but in all of the good ways!"
"Escalate is the thrill of the modern circus with depth in place of pomp. It is for any and everyone but especially for mothers who find their sons flipping water bottles and anything else they can get their hands on. I believe you would find comfort and hope from this energising performance. Well worth an evening in the pretty city for this show."
"This was an extremely enjoyable performance that captures the beauty that is female pleasure and why it should be celebrated. If you would like to learn more about the artistry of female pleasure and sensuality in a light hearted and comedic tone, this is certainly the show for you!"
"BABECITY Hotline might seem risqué, but at its core it’s a heartwarming workplace comedy about a woman finding acceptance and finding herself in an unlikely place. If you’re going to watch a comedy set at a phone sex hotline this Fringe - make this the one you see."
"Pops is an exploration of addiction that is nuanced and powerful. The team that has given us the Australian premiere of the show presents the challenging text in a way that is both compelling and empathetic. A stand-out fringe performance that shouldn’t be missed."
"Foreign Body is such an enlightening gem of a show, with delicious twists, turns and callbacks all the way through. Candice D'Arcy's engaging and charismatic presence combined with the paired back simplicity of Trudi Boatwright's direction is well-balanced and thought provoking in its examination of culture, racism, family dynamics and motherhood."
"It's shows like type-a-poet that make Fringe Festivals exciting. This is a unique experience that is yours and yours alone. No one else will ever have the moment you have shared with Snelling. 24 hours after my visit to the Temple of Poetry I read my poem and continue to be amazed at how much the silence between us speaks volumes on paper."
"Melbournians have had plenty of serious stuff to deal with for the last couple of years. The antidote might just be the kind of frivolous, loose fun we can find in an 8:30pm Fringe show like Kieran Bullock’s Ikea Wars, a useful addition to a night at Trades Hall."
"Benjamin Nichols and Izabella Yena are rightfully asserting a place for themselves in the local theatre scene for their exciting and innovative theatre making; they are being recognised by critics and awards committees and this performance will undoubtedly stand out as being one of the highlights of this years Fringe festival."
"If you want to see on stage a fine example of something tough, strong and well-made from the 1960s, (and I'm not just referring to my nan's kitchen table used as both prop and apparatus) grab your tickets now and enjoy Zoe. You are never too old for the circus. Even if you don't usually go to the circus this will enthral, amaze and scare you… in a fabulous way."
"Through dark comedic wit and magnetic naturalism Jessica Stanley lures the audience into her world through the subtle exploration of everyday sounds, and the world of audial sensitivity. We even get a bedtime story, which is an absolute treat for adults!"
"York hits all the right notes while barnstorming sing-along power ballads from the likes of Celine Dion. And while this saucy trio’s brand of camp fantabulousness is a silly good time, there’s real showbiz skill to how York spins audience suggestions of what they love/hate into a rousing tune on the spot. Catch her if you can."
"Andrew (TikTok star, Green Room award-winner) and O’Brien (neither) previously had a sold-out tour of No Hat, No Play! The Cabaret! They’ve certainly backed this up with Shit-Wrecked!, which is indeed a seaworthy vessel for their comedy."
"Bernie Dieters Club Kabarett is definitely worth frocking up for and venturing out to see. Take your friends and make a night of it. And if you’re thinking of going with your parents, maybe send them on a different evening – the ‘silver foxes’ will love it too. "
"A Leah Shelton performance is an event to be experienced if you have the means and opportunity, fortunately for local audiences her new show Batsh*t playing at Darebin Arts is an exhilarating and often poignant platform for her immense skill and status as a performance artist."
"Andrew (TikTok star, Green Room award-winner) and O’Brien (neither) previously had a sold-out tour of No Hat, No Play! The Cabaret! They’ve certainly backed this up with Shit-Wrecked!, which is indeed a seaworthy vessel for their comedy. Anchors aweigh! This 7.00pm show – full of topical issues, odd angles, and bangers – is sure to set you up for a quality night of Melbourne Fringe cruising at Trades Hall."
"Deceptively simple in its visuals, This is Where We Live is complex and tense, telling a multi-layered story of family violence, disability, hopelessness, emotional abuse, parental expectations and the systems that work against young people trying to free themselves from their life trajectories. Packed with psychological insight into the impacts of trauma, family violence and disability on young people, the play provides insight into the trapped lives in which many young people find themselves. It’s compelling viewing, and the story and performances will stay with me for a while."
"Grand Theft Theatre is a sensitive and intelligent exploration of the vital role memory plays in keeping theatre alive. They possess the talent, commitment and technique to make theatre as memorable as many of the artists they admire, and someone should throw money at them, pronto, so they can take their work to the next level."
"Bernie Dieters Club Kabarett is definitely worth frocking up for and venturing out to see. Take your friends and make a night of it. And if you’re thinking of going with your parents, maybe send them on a different evening – the ‘silver foxes’ will love it too."
"“f--king phenomenal”. Frankly, all I can say is ditto, Dieter, ditto. Isn’t it joyous when an enthralled crowd spontaneously stomps its feet to show appreciation, swept up in the ecstasy of witnessing gloriously talented artists performing extraordinary feats?"
