Description

The anarchy and fun of late-night Edinburgh variety shows come to FRINGE WORLD. This isn't your everyday variety show. It's a hand-picked hour of unique comedy, cabaret and fringe oddities, barely held together by your hilariously chaotic ringmaster Tomás Ford (Crap Music Rave Party). Last year, Tomás got a review saying his show was "a bit too Edinburgh Fringe." After seven years spent slogging through freezing Scottish summers, marathon-watching as many shows as he could between his own gigs, he considered this high praise. But also: a challenge. Come join this late-night party with a carefully calibrated mix of award-winners, cult heroes... and the kind of genuinely weird sh*t that you just don't get to see any other time of year. Don't worry, it'll be a lot Too Edinburgh Fringe. # Presented by Tomás Ford Tomás Ford is Perth's own international party icon with a cult audience across Australia, New Zealand, Europe and Malaysia. When there isn't an apocalypse on, he can often be found starting trouble in cities around the world on weekends, but is a fixture of the local music, comedy and... most of Perth's year-round arts scenes, actually. His ridiculous comedy nightclub Crap Music Rave Party has been a juggernaut hit, serving hyperactive clowning, terrible music and good times. His other, "critically acclaimed but publicly ignored" work as a punk-rock-thrill machine/alternative cabaret kingpin/electronic musician has been on the road for 19 years. His shows frame his songwriting and storytelling in brain-overwhelming DIY spectaculars. His new LP "Have A Bath With Me?" is out this summer. # Dates and Venues Le Roi at Belgian Beer Cafe: Jan 14, 15, 21, 22, 28, 29 Feb 4, 5, 11, 12
