The GC Welcomes The Brightest Comedy Stars This Adelaide Fringe
The GC are excited to announce their comedy line up for the 2019 Adelaide Fringe which has some of the funniest stars from Australia, and the world. The GC is also home to a huge collection of cabaret, theatre and magic that will be sure to have you coming back for more.
Comic genius Greg Fleet is teaming up with Jasmine Fairburn and Clayton Storey in an acclaimed, 5-star musical love story, that is equal parts 'irresistible first kiss and unstoppable, hate fuelled wrecking ball'. 'This Is Not A Love Song' is making a welcome returned to Adelaide after rave reviews across Australia. A story about love and loss and rock and roll, that begs the question, the end of love is always agony, but what really hurts more: losing your partner, or losing their record collection?
Joanne McNally is bringing her show, Wine Tamer, to the Adelaide Fringe for the first time in 2019. Fresh from a sell-out run in Edinburgh, Ireland's brightest new comedian offers a hysterical and whip-smart look at life, love and the lies we tell ourselves. The Irish stand-up comedian, writer and actor has seen great success as a performer at some of the world's best Fringe and comedy festivals.
The GC's cabaret line up has some of the best of the 2018 Fringe returning, as well as some new faces that are sure to be firm favourites of the 2019 Festival.
Helpmann award winner Michael Griffiths and cabaret darling Amelia Ryan bring the songbooks of two of Australia's greatest icons to life with a live three-piece band in Livvy & Pete. From small, humble beginnings, to world domination, join the journey as you revisit all their sing-a-long classics, from Rio all the way to Xanadu.
Sylvia Brecko is back after a stellar 2018 Fringe, with a new 2019 special that follows the German stars of 'Eurovision Song Contest', and all the glitter, glitz and glamour that comes along with it! Sit in awe as she sings the songs of these unforgotten female artists, and keeps you entertained as she chats about their lives, from show business to personal lives.
Bald Eagles bring their smooth ride and trademark thrilling harmonies to The GC in their 'Livin' It Up At The Hotel C'. Australia's most celebrated Eagles interpreters have reached legend status since their 2009 Fringe debut, and this year won't disappoint. 'Livin' It Up At The Hotel C' sees the 7-piece band joined by stings and brass, and at least one potted palm. The only dull moment will be when it's all over and you're paying for parking!
Barry Gray, aka The Gentleman of Mediumship, is beloved for his connection and communication with the spirit world. The 2013 SA 'Psychic of the Year' will communicate and bring through messages from our dearly departed, as he gives messages of love and hope from those in the spirit world. A show not to be missed for those interested in the spirit world, or even the sceptics, the show will leave you questioning what you know.
For the kids, The GC is delighted to be welcoming Humphrey B. Bear through their humble doors. Humphrey makes his Adelaide Fringe debut in 2019, with a fun-filled and interactive show packed with music, dance and a little audience interaction. Bring the kids, or relive your own childhood, in this nostalgic and endearing show for all ages!
