One Man. One beard. One backpack. Many countries. No idea!

Marcus Ryan (SOLD OUT ‘Love Me Tinder’ 2014/15) took a little #journey
performing stand-up comedy around 17 Latin American countries…
Hitchhiking, earthquakes, drug smuggling, muggings, diarrhoea & dancing,
love, sex, nudity, riots, arrests & finding WIFI in the Amazon!… 18
months later he still can’t speak Spanish but has a debt, a beard & some
bloody GREAT stories!
If you’ve ever felt like packing up and seeing
the world, learning a language or simply going on a vacation overseas…
Well this show might NOT be for you!


Come and experience first hand what this vagabond comedian got up to and
you might be scarred for life! But at least you’ll have a good laugh and
the adventures and misfortunes of somebody who survived to tell the
tales!
Take a trip through the Americas with Marcus, an often
educational & most definitely hilarious heartwarming look at life out of
a backpack and growing a beard. (Just don’t tell his mum!)

… Let’s Get Trickier

South Australia’s leading family magician is back, cheekier, funnier &
trickier than ever! After sellout shows in 2014, 2015 & 2016, Michael
Wilkop (aka Mickster the Trickster) returns to the Adelaide Fringe with
what promises to be an award-winning show!

Expect to see a high energy, new age magic show filled with elite
trickery & astonishing illusions, delivered with Michael’s trademark
mischievous wit. He is not just a magician, but a trained actor who
brings a theatrical sense to the performance.

Apart from magic the show includes awesome demonstrations of mind
reading using real psychological techniques. By using language patterns
and power of suggestion Michael will influence the choices of his
spectators and gauge people’s thought processes by reading their body
language.

He is quick to point out that the real stars of the show are his lovely
assistant Becky Lee and two of his highly-trained Doves (Marshmallow,
and Knick Knack); who each have their own specialised tricks and are
given star treatment on and off the stage!

Most importantly, ALL proceeds from Michael’s first show on 17 February
will be going to Headspace and Cancer Council SA, two charities
extremely important to him that have touched both himself and his
friends.

This is one MUST SEE Fringe show that will entertain all age groups and
walks of life.

‘One Wild Night’ The Australian Bon Jovi Tribute Show

Years in the making, ‘ONE WILD NIGHT’ THE AUSTRALIAN BON JOVI TRIBUTE
SHOW is not your typical ‘dress up & pretend’ Tribute act!

This show consists of five of Australia’s finest rock musicians joining
forces to recreate the music of Bon Jovi as authentically as possible,
from Jon’s soaring vocals at his peak, to Richie Sambora’s screaming
guitar solos, and the huge Keyboard sounds that gave Bon Jovi it’s
unique edge over many similar bands of the time. This Tribute Show
captures the essence of what this great band is about, the passion &
hunger of the early years and the brilliant songs that live in the
hearts of so many diehard fans!  

‘ONE WILD NIGHT’ focus on the earlier period of Bon Jovi and the great
hits and anthems that time produced; from the song that started it all
‘Runaway’ to timeless hits like ‘Livin’ On A Prayer’ & ‘You Give Love A
Bad Name’; to the heart wrenching ballads ‘Bed Of Roses’ & ‘Always’
right through to the more recent hits. Don’t miss this awesome show!

‘Stimela’ The Gumboot Musical

An international phenomenon that  swept across the globe.

A tidal wave of soaring voices & stomping feet.

Gumboot dancing was born out of the oppressive gold mines of South
Africa. Forbidden to speak, the slaves developed their own language by
slapping their gumboot & rattling ankle chains.

Celebration of the body as a musical instrument. Energetic.
