About this event

Burlesque. Improv. Fracking. These are the cornerstones of Australian culture...

Join writer/comedian/dependant Patrick Marlborough, HFA (The Guardian, VICE, Rolling Stone, Junkee, Crikey, Meanjin) on a madcap celebration of Australia’s benevolent mining megacorps and their generous support of our cherished Arts and Cabaret sector.

On Fringe is a TED talk by way of a Vyvanse prescription, a hyperactive, hyperassociative, hyper-libellous trip through the Wonka tunnel of Mr. Marlborough’s 10+ year career as a working artist and dole recipient.

You are humbly invited to this Woodside chat.

(All profits will be donated to The Peter Coleman Fund, Mr. Marlborough’s charity for up and coming CEOs.)

“Troubled boy” The Daily Telegraph
“Dig it” Tim Heidecker
“Why didn’t you tell me this guy was actually funny?” Tom Scharpling, The Best Show

Fringefeed reviews energised by Woodside

  • Marlborough certainly has the gloves off. Even if you’re a little curious, grab a ticket. – Seesaw
  • Though the show is disjointed in parts, the erratic tone is ultimately endearing and is one that suits the material well. – Fringefeed
