One performer is dressed in a ghost sheet wearing a party hat, red high heels and holding a cake, the other is wearing a tan nighty, party hat and black high heels. The performer in the tan nighty is pretending to blow out a candle atop the cake.

Party Ghost

Circus • Comedy
Victoria • Adelaide Fringe Premiere

Party Ghost is a ghouslish journey of the post-mortem mystery through a comedic pop-cultural lens. A cacophony of dismembered limbs & ghosts that range from the ludicrous to the downright disturbing, this show is next level messed up & twice as amusing.

Featuring macabre circus darlings Jarred Dewey (Circa, YUMMY) & Olivia Porter (Circus Oz, La Soireè) directed by Nicci Wilks (Sh*t, The Long Pigs), the show centres around a twisted narrative of perpetual birthday purgatory & ghostly identity crises. As sidesplittingly hilarious & downright weird as it is physically astonishing, this show sees two of Australia’s most sought-after company acrobats behind the wheel of their own show. Fans of high-level circus & dark comedy will find Party Ghost refreshing, jaw-dropping & hauntingly hilarious.
