After a sell-out success at Perth Fringe World 2019, Dan Willis is coming back to Perth for one more show!
A Whinging Pom’s Guide is an insight into the funny side of Australia – through the eyes of a pom. Dan Willis shares his hilarious take on the weather, our fantastic sayings, the size of our spiders and of course, how well (or not) we are doing in the cricket! Prepare for side-splitting laughs every minute as he delves into Australian culture and compares it to English traditions. This show is enjoyed by Australian and English audiences alike!
‘Unpretentious, informal, belly laughs a minute stand-up. ★★★★’ ThreeWeeks (UK) ’55 minutes of side-splitting laughter. ★★★★★’ Plains Producer
This once-off performance is on at the Comedy Lounge at 4pm on 26 October. For more information, visit the Facebook event here or purchase tickets here.
Best of British Productions is bringing their most talented comedians to Perth for a series of stand-up shows during the Fringe World Festival.
Best of British is a showcase of the finest British comedians, many of whom appear regularly at the top comedy clubs in the UK. This year’s exclusive line-up includes Mandy Knight (recent winner of UK Comedy’s “Comedians Comedian- MC of the Year”), Carey Marx (two-time winner of Best International Show at the New Zealand Comedy Festival), Milo McCabe (two-time nominee for Best show at the Edinburgh Festival) and Dan Willis (comedy world record holder as the first comedian to perform six one hour shows a day at the Edinburgh festival without repeating material).
PLUS… there will be a different surprise guest every day (previous years have included Sarah Millican, Jimeoin, Russell Kane and Jimmy Carr!)
Dan Willis is also performing his own solo show, Australia: A Whinging Poms Guide. He moved here a few years ago and it took him a while to adjust to our laid-back way of life; therefore he has many hilarious and unique stories to share. This will be a favourite amongst all the ex-pats as I’m sure they will be able to relate! Tickets can be purchased here: https://fringeworld.com.au/whats_on/australia-a-whinging-poms-guide-fw2019
For something a bit different, try The Ashes: Comedy Showdown. A bunch of Australian and British comedians go head to head in a test series to prove which country is funnier. You don’t need a knowledge of cricket to watch this, you just need to enjoy a bit of healthy competition! This was nominated for Best Comedy Show at Fringe World in 2016 and is sure to be a hit again! Tickets to all five parts are available here: https://fringeworld.com.au/whats_on/the-ashes-comedy-showdown-fw2019
Milo McCabe is making his debut in Perth with his critically-acclaimed character stand-up show 1001 Moments with Troy Hawke! Troy is on a quest to understand the simplest of things and shares his own conspiracy theories – including the Scrabble theory (you have to hear this!) He was awarded the British Fringe Guide Top Recommended Shows of 2017 and 2018 so you know this will be an un-missable show!

I know that’s a lot of options, so if you aren’t sure what to see, Best of Fringe: Early Show is perfect as it showcases several fantastic comedians in a mini-gala. As it is on early, you will still have time to buy a ticket to see your favourite act in full that evening! This has been a sellout at Adelaide Fringe & Melbourne Comedy Festival from 2008 – 2017, so don’t wait too long to get your tickets from here: https://fringeworld.com.au/whats_on/best-of-fringe-early-show-fw2019
