Comedy: Tom Skelton’s Macbeth

30 Jan – 4 Feb @ Lazy Susan’s Comedy Den ·
Presented by Flash in the Can ·

“By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes …” Shakespeare

Tom Skelton, UK comic and improv star, finally gets the chance to put on his favourite Shakespeare play,  but he only has one actor (himself), who’s registered blind and who might not know all his lines.  A fiercely funny farce ensues, as character comedy maverick Skelton presents his unique Macbeth.

Tom Skelton developed Leber’s Hereditary Optic Neuropathy (a genetic eye condition that runs in his family) ten years ago, leaving him with 5% vison. He first noticed some loss of vision at the Edinburgh Fringe,  when fellow performers on stage became blurry, and he started to struggle to read the information on  tickets. His sight quickly deteriorated and he was diagnosed weeks later.

Tom’s favourite Shakespeare play is Macbeth and he has always wanted to play him. But after losing his vision, he never thought that he would. Tom Skelton’s Macbeth is a World Premiere at 2019 Fringe World.

Tom is a character comedian and improviser, who happens to be registered blind. He’s had four smash hits  at Edinburgh: Blind Eye Spy, Blind Man’s Bluff, Foolball and 2061. He stars in Adventures of the Improvised Sherlock Holmes, works with the BAFTA-winning History Bombs and is a founding member of UK improv comedy  group Racing Minds.

Comedy: Adventures of the Improvised Sherlock Holmes

2 – 9 Feb @ Circus Theatre @ Fringe Central ·
Presented by Flash in the Can ·

Following sold-out Fringe World seasons in 2016 & 2017, Adventures of the Improvised Sherlock Holmes returns to Perth in 2019. Starring a rotating cast of the UK’s best comedy improv artists, the story  is new each show, with suggestions from the audience driving a bizarre mystery solved by Sherlock.

The show rotates who plays Sherlock Holmes each day, and takes inspiration from the mystery and intrigue  of the Victorian era – a time when Australia was a land of allure and enchantment to adventurous Brits.  Director Tom Wilkinson says: “The show is completely new every day, prompted by a suggestion slip we pick  out of a silk top hat. Everyone in the queue gets to suggest what the ‘case’ Sherlock will solve that day will be”.

The versatile troupe of: Daniel Nils Roberts (Racing Minds), Tom Skelton (Racing Minds), Vicky Hawley and  Caitlin Campbell will also be seen in the most exciting comedy shows across Perth, with the cast being  involved in seven shows between them, including: Aaaand Now for MORE Kiddo Kaos!, Improv Allstars Up Late and Did you Hear what I Saw?

The cast originally met while studying at Oxford University, where they joined the Oxford Imps, whose spin off group of 2011 graduates formed Racing Minds, now one of the biggest improv names on the international Fringe circuit.

**** “The production is rife with moments of sparkle and intelligence … copious amounts of talent and boundless potential” (Plays To See)

**** “This excellent improvised show is full of laughs, madness and superb deductions … very funny and  beautifully devious” (Fringe Guru)

“Good improvisation is like walking a tightrope; it’s a dangerous form of theatre without a net” (The West Australian)

“My six-year-old son and I were both in hysterics at the show we attended which was entirely  due to the talent of the ensemble rather than any luck or divine intervention. So, whilst no  two shows could possibly bare the same outcomes, I’d find it impossible to conceive that each performance would be anything less than hilarious (playandgo.com.au Australia)

“Impressive improvisational talent … fast-paced, inventive, jolly good fun” (The West Australian)

“Script-less brilliance, crowd captivated from start to finish” (Three Weeks, Edinburgh)

Top stars of UK improv get together for Whose Line Is It Anyway-style games, scenes, songs and puns galore, in a unique and whip-smart melee of make-em-ups (with milk and two sugars)! This gag-packed whirlwind of an evening is a unique opportunity to catch award- winning improv talent from across a range of the biggest shows in British improvised comedy.

Tom Skelton, Vicky Hawley, Caitlin Campbell and Daniel Nils Roberts bring combined experience with Fringe World sellout favourites Racing Minds, Edinburgh Fringe  sensations Murder She Didn’t Write, marvellous returning mystery Adventures of the Improvised Sherlock Holmes and West End  Austentatious – and now they’re putting you in charge for this unmissable guffaw-fest  based entirely on audience suggestions!

If Brexit is proving anything, it’s that no one makes it up as they go along quite like the British!

“We can’t wait to bring our quick-witted, distinctly British style of silliness to Australia,” says Daniel Nils Roberts. “After all, you might soon be the only trading partner we have left! Like Prince Philip on a statevisit, we really have no idea what we’re going to say, so we need your suggestions to speed us on our way. You know that weird thing you’ve always wanted to see comedy about? Here’s your chance to shout it out and see it performed by some of the fastest, brightest and funniest comics the UK has to offer.”

“Improv at its finest” ★★★★ The Australia Times.
“Fast-paced, inventive, jolly good fun” ★★★★ The West Australian.

Children: Did you Hear what I Saw?

30 Jan – 1 Feb @ Subiaco Arts Centre ·
Presented by Flash in the Can ·

Tom and Tom have been best friends for 9,855 days and counting. They’ve walked miles through blizzards, run amok in city streets and been superheroes of the playground. Their amazing bond  was strengthened as Tom Skelton lost his sight and Tom GK his hearing. This is their unique story of lasting friendship, with songs and silliness along the way.

Tom Skelton is a character comedian and improviser, who happens to be registered blind. He’s had four smash hits at Edinburgh: Blind Eye Spy, Blind Man’s Bluff, Foolball and 2061. He stars in  Adventures of the Improvised Sherlock Holmes and is a member of UK improv comedy group Racing Minds.

Tom Skelton developed Leber’s Hereditary Optic Neuropathy (a genetic eye condition that runs in his family) ten years ago, leaving him with 5% vision. He first noticed some loss of vision at the Edinburgh Fringe, when fellow performers on stage became blurry, and he started to struggle to  read the information on tickets. His sight quickly deteriorated and he was diagnosed weeks later. Tom GK grew up obsessed with music and became a successful music critic for London’s Daily Telegraph. He then began losing his hearing and was diagnosed with a genetic disease, neurofibromatosis.  He now writes and performs about it.

Visual Arts: How To Be A Better Man in 2019

30 Jan – 2 Feb @ Paper Mountain ·
Presented by Paper Mountain ·

Part of Peaks 2019, Paper Mountain’s program of visual art and performance for
Fringe World Festival

In a highly charged performance artwork, Bonnie Lane presents a humorous workshop that is open to all, while aiming to educate the heterosexual male on the role of masculinity in 2019. The artist invites critical debate by sharing personal anecdotes, historical references, videos, and provocative dance routines that will have the audience questioning ‘how far have we really progressed?’

Bonnie Lane is a multidisciplinary artist who unapologetically creates and responds to sexually explicit content, including but not limited to the public presentation of her body as an object of desire. This project is a direct response to the multiple requests sent from her male fans on social media, asking that she please ‘teach them’ how to navigate  the contemporary woman in this time of uncertainty.

Comedy: CAUTION: Deadline Ahead (A comedy about procrastination)

21 Jan – 1 Feb @ Rosie O’Grady’s ·
Presented by Cristina Lark ·

You have goals, you have plans, you have a brilliant future ahead. But you also have Candy Crush, Facebook, and 1,035 unread emails that you decided now is a good time to sort. Welcome to Cristina’s brain, an entity of its own, with its own will, who’s convinced that the concept of time is an illusion and that it’s suddenly a great moment to read about it online.

Presented by Cristina Lark, CAUTION: Deadline Ahead, is a solo sketch and storytelling comedy unlike any other – you’ll either thank heavens you’re not like her, or you’ll reassess your shameful life.

Actress, comedian and world-class procrastinator, Cristina Lark is now location independent, having lived and performed in London, Barcelona, Madrid and São Paulo, and even in Melbourne, where she directed 2 shows for the Fringe 2016 and was kicked out of the country, since in 3 months she couldn’t find an Australian husband to upgrade her visa. She’s bringing her unique blend of humour, sharp take on life and weird accent to Fringe World for the first time ever with CAUTION: Deadline Ahead. A comedy about procrastination. BE THERE at the premiere (or any given point in the near future).
