The Garden Of Unearthly Delights are teasing their first round of shows as part of 2021's Adelaide Fringe.
This tease includes The Umbilical Brothers, Effie, Dom Chambers, Nathan Cavaleri and Kate Ceberano among others.
The Garden's 2020 season ended the day before the pandemic shut the whole country down, and organizers have been working all year to ensure that 2021's season is filled with top-quality acts.
Comedy is spread throughout the season, including the Garden debut of The Umbilical Brothers. Tripod are back, while Effie returns and adopted Adelaidean Nurse Georgie Carroll will nurse us all back to health and Jimeoin brings the laughs.
Meanwhile also playing are comedy veterans Arj Barker and Lano & Woodley, as well as Tommy Little, Nath Valvo, Sam Simmons and more.
It's been hard to catch live music at all in 2020, but the Garden is bringing it all back in the form of gigs by Katie Noonan, Kate Ceberano, singer-songwriter Nathan Cavaleri, Joe Camilleri with The Black Sorrows, and The Real Housewives Choir with an uplifting musical comedy.

Of course there's plenty to see and do for all ages at the Garden. The Amazing Drumming Monkeys return, as do ARIA-nominated duo The Teeny Tiny Stevies. Weekend mornings will go off in Monski Mouse's Baby Disco Dance Hall.
Dom Chambers of 'America's Got Talent' and 'The Illusionists' fame brings his ambitious show to the Garden while cabaret 'The Aspie Hour' will redefine what it is to be an 'asp'.
"The COVID-19 pandemic has thrown up huge challenges for all of us endeavouring to present performing arts events," Garden Co-Director Michelle Buxton says. "The Gardeners have worked tirelessly this year to redesign The Garden to ensure that The Garden of Unearthly Delights that is both full of energy and joyous encounters AND COVID-safe for our audience, artists and team." The full programme is out 13 January.
