I’m thrilled to be going to Adelaide next week to attend the Adelaide Fringe Festival and to helping with some PR for this show, Darkness and Light.
Depression and anxiety are often taboo subjects in our society but this Comedy Show is bringing light to the topic through a range of hilarious and talented comedians sharing their stories. This is a subject close to my heart after supporting Black Dog Institute last year when climbing Machu Picchu to raise awareness for Depression and much needed funds for this great organisation.
If in Adelaide over the next week, this is a must see!
Darkness and Light at the Adelaide Fringe
Adelaide, South Australia: Making its debut at the Adelaide Fringe Festival this year, Darkness and Light is a show for those who like their comedy a little on the real side.
Darkness and Light will run at The Tuxedo Cat from March 10 To March 17th (excluding Wednesday 13th ) at 11pm each night.
Darkness and Light brings together a fusion of funny people using a combination of stand-up, and stunning storytelling, to uncover the comedy gold that lurks beneath some of their darkest days. This is not about making light of a serious issue, it’s to demonstrate how darkness and light can co-exist in our lives and we can persevere.
Anyone who’s ever experienced bullying, mental illness, racism, coming out, grief, chronic illness, substance misuse, a broken heart, or just a really bad day will find they’re not the only ones, as some of the Fringe Festival’s top comics (and some very special international guests) share their very personal postcards from the edge.
Often confronting, but always funny, the Darkness and Light line-up changes every night, and features a stellar selection of comics at the top of their game, including:
DeAnne Smith, Cath Styles, Richard McKenzie, Jon Bennett, Michael Bowley, Toby Halligan, Lori Bell, Alexis Dubus, Simon Taylor, Morven Smith, Ben McKenzie, Mark Trenwith, Nikki Britton, Nath Valvo, Abigoliah Schamaun, Juliet Meyers, Bryan Lynagh, Tim Whitt, and many more.
*Check Fringe website for nightly line-up.
We invite you to step into the dark side, and see the light!
“Darkness and Light was an important and deeply satisfying evening. I came away feeling uplifted. I strongly suggest people go and support this show. It needs to be performed again and again: opening people’s minds, opening people’s hearts.” Glass Wings
