Scaled madeleine cover

The best of Fringe Comedy and Cabaret is selected for you in a relaxed, entertaining and fully air-conditioned afternoon show which is packed full of laughs, entertainment and much more!

There's a different line-up of top-rated international and Australian performers at the show every day, all hand-picked from venues around the festival.

Resident host Nik Coppin introduces the acts, in the comfort of the Austral’s air-conditioned Bunka, making this one of the most chilled-out ways to spend an afternoon watching top-class Fringe entertainment. There's also meals available, and a private bar.

What better way could there be to get your Fringe weekends started?

Led by Artistic Director Sean Riley, with Directors Claire Glenn and Nicole Allen, and Creative Producer Bec Pannell, our focus is on creating works with, by, about, and for young people. Catering for 5-25 year olds, since it’s inception in September 2014 SAYarts has created and produced the following shows: Warren (2014)– salvaged from Urban Myth’s demise with a Pozible campaign, #nofilter (sold out, Fringe 2015), Predator (sold out, 2015), the ATG Curtain Call award-winning Everybody Dies (Fringe 2016 sold out), Beautiful Words (Adelaide Fringe Cultural Fund recipient 2016), and Aftershocks (2016). In 2015 and 2016 SAYarts were Artists in Residence at Adelaide Secondary School of English (outcomes for Fringe 2016, SALA 2016). In January 2016 the company ran a large treasure hunt in partnership with the City of Unley for over 100 participants called Unpacking Unley’s Lost Worlds. We look forward to presenting Sean Riley's Grave Child for DreamBIG 2017 & Child X for Youth Week 2017.
