Adelaide Fringe_Cath Styles Poster

Sometimes you don’t choose the life … the life chooses you!

In the wake of becoming unexpectedly single, and even more unexpectedly turning 50, this fierce, funny feminist finds out what it’s like when your favourite joke becomes a reality!

From break-ups to wake-ups (and make-up!), Accidental Cougar is a fresh and funny look at dating later, and ever after.

Two jobs, two cats, two countries and four kids… nurse, comic, mother and mad international traveller Cath Styles finds a keepsake in Africa which turns her life upside down and makes her ask the big question…

Can you live your own punchline?

Butt Kapinski will captivate you at MICF 2016

Butt Kapinski is unusual, enticing and interactive. The poster alone will lure you in and make you want to know more! The show itself is bursting with action, engagement and so many laughs.


I had the pleasure of attending the show last night and after hearing so much buzz coming out of Adelaide Fringe, I was glad I did! Expect the unexpected with this show. Be prepared to get involved in the show and you’ll be captivated until the final applause.

Butt is a charachter, a very interesting character. Unmistakable in appearance and endearing in the quirky mannerism’s. This is a show you’ll see and talk about for weeks after.

You’ve got until the 17th April to see the show but don’t leave it too late, with the buzz that’s going around, the show is sure to be a sellout!


Details for the show!

Think it’s a solo show? Think again. Private eye Butt Kapinski invites you to co-star in a film noir murder mystery. This funny, filthy, fully interactive ride is riddled with sex, sin, shadows and subterfuge – no seat is safe!

From the director and co-writer of RED BASTARD – the internationally acclaimed bouffon show – Butt Kapinski has been taking North America by storm. With a swag of awards from Edmonton, Calgary, Hollywood, Orlando and Vancouver Fringes, and off the back of a huge Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2015, Butt makes her MICF debut.

Kick reality to the curb with this full-on interactive comedic experience! Play in a world of dark dreams and bad similes. ADULTS ONLY.

Darkness and Light at the Adelaide Fringe

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



Venue: The Tuxedo Cat

Dates:  10 March -17 March (no show Wednesday 13th March)

Media Release

13 February 2013

             Girls Night Out at the Adelaide Fringe


Adelaide, South Australia: Grab your girlfriends and get ready to giggle, Girls Night is back for the Adelaide Fringe 2013! Bringing together some of the best Australian and International female comics, this is a night to celebrate all things female and funny. Shows will be hosted from February 15 – March 2nd at The Austral in the city of Adelaide.

This is the fourth consecutive year for the popular Girls Night show, which has built a loyal following in its Comedy Festival touring. Producer Cath Styles wanted to provide and opportunity for female comics to network at the Comedy Festival and share their performances with not only the audience but also one another.

“Female comedians have a wonderful energy and camaraderie off the stage, I wanted to bring that experience out for audiences to see. The girls have a great night performing together and the atmosphere in the room reflects the fun!” said producer Cath Styles.

The Girls Night in Adelaide is looking forward to a stellar line-up with Cath Styles, Abigoliah Schamaun, Em O’Loughlin, Jenny Wynter, Nikki Britton, Geraldine Hickey, Sullivan and Bok, Titty Bar Ha Ha, Diana Nguyen, JMac, Victoria Healey,  Julia Clarke, Morven Smith, Nat Britten, Kim Kirby Olsen, and many more…

From musical comedy, raw acts and veterans, this show has something for everyone. The line-up changes every night so one could come to the show every day (we hope you do!) and experience a completely different show! The girls use comedy from their old shows, new shows and more often than not just go with the flow of the audience on the night!

Girls Night has more female comics than any other show at the Fringe Festival and we’re proud to sing it for the sisters! Men are of course welcome to experience the hilarity and insight into the female psyche as these women offer a diverse range of comedy for one and all to enjoy!
