Heath Franklin's Chopper Repeat Offender

Adelaide Fringe, Garden of Unearthly Delights, until March 9

Review by Honey B

Heath Franklin may still dress up as the infamous criminal Mark "Chopper'' Read but the quick-witted comedian is letting his own comedy shine through more and more. Sure, he still has the black texta tatts up and down his arms, the dark shades and baggy trackies but these days Franklin voices more of his gripes - or societies gripes. The audience was with him every step of the way and enjoyed the freedom as Chopper/Franklin let free on everything from expensive beer to the internet, dating and everything in-between. He even outsourced part of the show which turned out to be a very clever idea and was the perfect chance for the comedian to have a sneaky beer. The Wednesday night audience was enjoying the show so much that Franklin did an extra 10 minutes.
