Australian Premiere

Boogers, Books and Big Bottom Burps!

Children's / Comedy
Scaled reid
The most awesome, exciting and inspirational author event EVER! as award-winning Scottish author Stuart Reid brings his best-selling books to life. Stuart has performed at over 1300 festivals, schools and libraries around the world, to over a quarter of a million kids and few members of royalty too.

Winner of the Silver Seal at the Forward National Literature Awards in Atlanta, USA, Stuart's books feature a plethora of pooping, pumping and parping. His only regret is that there are no scratch and sniff copies.

WARNING: This show contains words like POO, BARF and WEE.

This show will feature books, boogers, butts and big bottom burps - the clue is in the title. Your Granny will be grossed, some kids may wet themselves laughing. It might get yucky. There may be snot. You have been warned!

Presented by:

The Griffins Hotel

The Griffins Hotel has been a long time supporter of Fringe and loves to get involved the "buzz and atmosphere" that comes along with the Fringe Festival. They focus their 3 event spaces on Comedy, and that's everything from basic one person Stand Up through to Cabaret Comedy. The venue works with its artists to make their shows the best they can be, from start to finish of the festival. The Hotel is also known as a great place to have a meal and drink at, both before and after any Fringe event.
