Fancy a bit of comedy but can’t quite decide who to see first? Want the best bang for your buck? Well, this show is for you! A Cut Above is a pick ‘n’ mix of comedians giving you a little taster of their latest material. This show will help you decide where to head next at FRINGE WORLD 2021.
Every Friday and Saturday night for the duration of Fringe a different cast of comics will descend to this CBD basement-bar, 43 Below. Cheap pints and drink specials make this cozy dungeon an easy spot for a tipple or two!
MC Tim Kershaw led the night with an easy humour that left the audience eager to hear more between each set.
First to the stage was Aaron Ajay, whose twisted guitar comedy had the audience cheering like they were at an Ed Sheeran Concert - even though he asked us to!
If you’re into evenings in the basement then you’ll love the self-confessed BDSM and fast-food addict, Glenn Grimwood. It was a joy to watch Glenn make the audience squirm with his self-deprecating humour and descriptions of life with his (hopefully fictional) flatmate.
After a short intermission, Phil Cook’s poetry and fresh take on dad jokes was followed by Gareth McKean hilariously trying to understand who exactly his 19-year-old daughter’s Instagram followers were.
Last on stage was the headline act, Jimmy “Seppo” Kuratz, with his unique hillbilly take on life in Australia. Keep an eye out for him at Fringe this year!
They made us groan, made us screech in disgust and made us roar with laughter. So if you’re looking for a risk-free, cheap ’n’ cheerful night out, head to A Cut Above. Every night, there’ll be a different lineup of comedians offering you the crème de la crème of their spicy stand-up. Feel free to head back here again and again and again!
Oh and remember! The venue is more or less equidistant between Girls School and The Woodside Pleasure Gardens so there’ll be plenty of time afterwards to catch a late-night show at either venue or continue the night in the CBD.
