Last night of Fringe 2017

Caption is quote from Ray Cashman on FaceBook: “Is there anything better in Sydney Comedy than watching an intimate audience exposed to Sue Thomas for the first time?”  Very funny.

Had a great time checking out the (Un)Australian show and the Funniest Shorts show at the Factory Theatres (which I was in — In Corey Farrell’s Womb Cop). Then I had to make a mercy dash down King Street Newtown to appear in the “Nasty” show at the Hilarium.

When I got there the place was packed. The Arab showcase was very good and deserved all the attention it , was getting. I watched with pleasure: Saed, Frida, Jamal and Seizure all going at it with consummate professionalism.

I got a last minute spot at the “Nasty” show and had a lot of fun. A great way to round out the festival. Thanks to Seizure (and Rodney Todd and Corey Farrell) and the guys at Hive Bar for making this the Fringe Festival with the most Sue Thomas content so far. Full on!!!

This is what Seizure said on FaceBook: Last night the Hilarium Sydney comedy club finished up its contract with Sydney Fringe Festival and have closed its doors for now (don’t worry, we will pop up again soon). It was a fun and awesome experience for all involved.

Me in Rodney’s show at the Factory – what can I say?

I had a lot of fun. More on Quotev later. Check out the Fringe Comedy ad.

How do you choose between two posters as gorgeous as this? Thank you Paige Halley.  Of course I chose the one with the pink scarf because it is zany and catches the eye.  The good thing is it makes me look like I have something exciting to reveal. Sadly it does make me look like my mother on heat.

 Event for First Show

 Event for Second Show

Please note the advertised time for the shows is 8PM.

Here is the final product: Womb Cop,  the movie that I made with director Corey Farrell. Its very funny and although I only had a small part it was a lot of fun. Look out for the stars: Ruven Govender, Sam Kissajukian and Madeleine Culp. They are great!

[Monday 27-3-17] It gets better: director Corey Farrell says Womb Cop is an official selection of the Die Laughing Film Festival in Hollywood. Talk about in with the in crowd!
