Adelaide Cabaret Festival

warms up

WE are heading into the second big week of the Adelaide Cabaret Festival and there are still plenty of amazing artists to see. If you haven’t seen The Swell Mob yet, get in quick as only 50 people can be immersed into Flabbergast Theatre’s world of thieves, fogle- hunters, dandies and deception during each show. It’s a highlight not to be missed – until June 22. Other Adelaide Cabaret Festival highlights include: Iota – Slap and Tickle: Slap is a clown and Tickle is his gimp. Slap (iOTA) is the brains behind this variety show taking on multiple roles of the cast while Tickle (Russell Leonard) rolls with the punches and dreams of a better life. Backed by an 11-piece jazz orchestra, Slap and Tickle is a hilarious and unexpectedly moving exploration of the variety genre, enduring talent and the ties that bind. June 21-22 Elaine Crombie: Janet’s Vagrant Love: Star of celebrated televisions hits Redfern Now, Grace Beside Me, Black Comedy, 8MMM and Kiki & Kitty, Elaine Crombie is no stranger to a good yarn, a laugh and a song. A proud Pitjantjatjar, Yunkunjtajarra, Warrimal, South Sea and German descended woman, Elaine is a powerhouse performer with an incredible voice and a story to tell. Elaine brings her new show to Adelaide Cabaret Festival to share a world full of music, laughs, loss and love complete with an original score. June 21-22 Spontaneous Broadway: Don’t miss Australia’s favourite improv musical comedy show thrilling audiences worldwide with hilarious new Broadway shows created every night on the spot.
