WELCOME TO THE GARDEN


Presented by Mary Tobin and The Garden

ARJ BARKER

Presented by Strut & Fret and The Garden

He’s back! Arj Barker returns to the fringe, armed with some new classics and some classic classics, to present one funny hour. If you don't laugh your ass off, there's something wrong with you! (In other words, don't ask for your money back.)

Direct from the Sydney Opera House and a sell-out season at the Edinburgh Fringe, the Tom Tom Club explodes into action! Australia’s freshest leading acrobats join forces with a trio of beat-boxing, drum stick wielding and record scratching musical prodigies, in this force-fueled production.

He will certainly sell out, so come see him while he still has integrity! Barker who won the coveted Perrier Best Newcomer Award in 1997 has firmly established himself as one of the golden boys on the international comedy circuit. Arj has just finished filming an HBO series with Flight of the Concords.

Shaking the walls of the Umbrella Revolution; Ben Walsh, DJ Dizz1 and world champion beat-boxer, Tom Thum, combine their breaks, bleeps and pulsating rhythms. Tom Flanagan, Ben Lewis, Daniel Catlow and Shane Witt – graduates of the Flying Fruit Fly Circus - flip, fly and slam up the stage as hard and fast as the boys with beats.

This is world-class comedy. www.arjbarker.com

A slap in the face collision of super-charged circus and heart-pumping music.

JIMEOIN e c I n O

Australia's very own International Drag Queens are hopelessly devoted to Sandy and Danny in the most awe-inspiring show you'll ever see. Don't miss the ultimate beauty-school-dropouts as they bring Rydell High to life in a musical parody with more glitter and gaudy costume changes than a Kylie concert.

From The Magical World of Jimeoin comes a new smash hit show. See Jimeoin gracefully skate through brilliantly funny observations on the absurdities of everyday life. With previous sell out seasons in Montreal, Edinburgh and London, you would not want to miss out... Get your skates on.

'Massively enjoyable...a camp romp of epic proportions... a resounding success that sees the packed room whooping, clapping and singing their hearts out.' Metro (UK) 'I defy anyone not to enjoy it. The hottest ticket of the Fringe.' One4Review (UK)

“As sharp as they come, laser-accurate with his observational comedy... Each punchline is beautifully underlined with a subtly arched eyebrow. In an age of warped wit, he is disconcertingly inoffensive.”

‘The best, most perversely entertaining show... why can’t more shows be like this?’ The Age

Winner of the 2007 Age Critics' Award at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Lawrence Leung bends over backwards in his nerdy hip-shattering quest for coolness. Join Lawrence as he encounters fashionistas, professional "pick up artists" and stumbles head-first into a hardcore breakdancing championship - all in an attempt to settle the score with his infinitely-cooler, bass-playing brother. Sold out at Edinburgh Fringe and London's Soho Theatre.

"An immensely entertaining and charming show, the hilarious breakdancing finale will have every audience member cheering for Lawrence Leung, the coolest geek in town." The List (UK)

An exquisite musical evening of high glamour and drama as Yorta Yorta/Dja Dja Wurung soul tidda (sister), Lou Bennett, sings and yarns her way through her amazing life. From small-town black chick playing doo wop in her Uncle’s band to the worldwide success of the trio “The Tiddas”, Lou’s stories and divine singing are an inspiration. Bravely coming out in a closed-minded town; to dealing with racist and sexist jaunts during performances - Lou’s courage and talent wins the day.

Professor Squealy Deetbum (Linsey Pollak) is the world's leading researcher in Cycology - the art of playing the bicycle. In this brilliant solo show, the bicycle seat, handlebar, gear cable, bicycle pump, wheels and frame are all turned into musical instruments. Their sounds are recorded live and mixed as you watch so as to create wondrous compositions.

H H H H H H H H H H H

H H H H H H H H H H H

"Linsey Pollak is one of Australia's most brilliant and under-rated composer/musicians. He is wildly innovative in the use of instruments but never lets his experimentation get in the way of the musicality of a work." Courier Mail

Where O’ Fortuna meets Disco Inferno! Where Mozart tackles Abba!

Tripod. Musical Comedy Geniuses. Need we say more? Yes.

Circus and Opera fuel the emotions more than the intellect; both have insignificant plots but wonderful moments; both involve humans going to extremes – vocally or physically; both are either loved or hated – no neutral ground; both are mysterious arts, achieved only after years of dedicated training.

"HHHHH One of the funniest things happening in Edinburgh right now. Or possibly the world... these guys are unbelievable musicians too. Sometimes five stars just aren't enough."

H H H H H

H H

H

H

A sellout performer at festivals around the world, Linsey is renowned for making music from carrots, chairs and even blow-up frogs.

H

H

"An ideal way to get children involved in the Fringe… brilliant acrobatics, remarkable circus tricks and some very funny individual performances" The Advertiser

H

Roll up! Roll up young and old for madness under the big top. The Kids Comedy Gala is a proper comedy club for children over six and anyone who's crazy for top quality comedy without rude bits. Playing host to a spectacular collection of outstanding performers including comedians, clowns, puppets, acrobats, magicians, music and mime; the gala is completely captivating and hysterically funny.

Ali McGregor hosts this unique showcase featuring a selection of The Garden of Unearthly Delight’s best cabaret, music and comedy performers. Acts include; notorious first ladies of crazed adagio ‘The Town Bikes’, purveyors of junkyard theatre ‘Suitcase Royale’, musical comedy trio ‘Hooray for Everything’, Brisbane powerhouse circus burlesque ‘After Dinner Mince’, aerial artist and twisted cabaret performer ‘Empress Stah’, French/Kiwi musicians ‘Mamaku Project’ and the hit of Edinburgh Fringe Festival the ‘Tom Tom Club’. A perfect way to sample the delights of this year’s Fringe.

H H H H H H H H H H H H

Comedic, beauteous and grotesque, The Town Bikes invite you to partake in an hour of Flesh for Fantasy. Behold their dazzling array of vivid costumes, lush soundscapes and zealous choreography. A hyperbole world of plastic meats, brazen balletics and gamboling game-show garnishes awaits.

H H H H H H H H H H H H

H

“Baffling ballerinas Carla Yamine and Gabi Barton truly dance well. Unlike lesser burlesques, the Bikes truly perform their gender. If you admire those that employ their performance powers for twisted theatrical evil instead of a standardised good, then take a ride with the Town Bikes.”

"This is one hell of a ride: non-stop, exhaustive, energetic and hilarious... a masterpiece." HHHH THE AGE

A fast-paced tumbling spectacle! The height and thrill of the Russian Bar, the grace of the Roue-Cyr (wheel), the control of hand-balancing and the child-like nature of the teeterboard all work together to create "Controlled Falling Project".

“Top of the must see list of Fringe Festival shows.” Arts Hub

“A boisterous and beautiful exploration of the extraordinary heights the human body can reach… a rare beast – a circus performance that is equally successful for its theatricality and athleticism. This is a must see.”

Jon Cleary is a triple threat with a salty-sweet voice, masterful piano skills, and a knack for coupling infectious grooves with melodic hooks and sharp lyrics. He balances a career performing with his band The Absolute Monster Gentlemen and Bonnie Raitt, recording with both groups, and composing songs for various artists. His live shows are an explosive funk party mixing old school soul with the rhythms of New Orleans.

STARKERS is a series of comedy monologues written by award winning Perth writers Kate Mulvany, Luke Milton and Damon Lockwood and performed by comedian Andrea Gibbs.

H

Raw Comedy National Finalist (2005) and Comedy Zone comedian (Melbourne Comedy Festival 2006), Andrea contradicts the age old misnomer 'girls aren't funny' and shows us in STARKERS that baring one's soul is a thrill sometimes too hard to contain!

Acclaimed singer / songwriter Mark Seymour has followed up his successful 18 years with Hunters & Collectors with a vibrant solo recording career. He continues to draw live audiences with his intense passionate vocals delivered with a measure of wry humour. Mark’s acclaimed fourth solo release ‘Westgate’ was released in 2007. In early March Mark will release a novel based on his observations and experiences in the music business, titled ‘Thirteen Tonne Theory ‘. Mark Seymour’s music and lyrics have formed an indelible part of Australia’s musical landscape.
