Comedian Jeff Green is many things aside from just a funnyman – he's a best-selling author, TV star and radio personality, with rave reviews and sell-out seasons to match.
He'll bring a round-up of his favourite stories, jokes and routines to Adelaide Fringe in a high-paced hour of belly laughs, when he presents 'As I Was Saying' to adoring crowds. But for now, in all his humility, he's decided to shine the spotlight on some of his fellow comedy connoisseurs, as he lists four shows to see throughout the festival.
“I’ve loved performing at Adelaide Fringe since my first visit here nearly 20 years ago. I look forward to not only entertaining audiences but catching up on seeing my fellow comics in action.”
Amos Gill. I’ve been watching local lad Amos Gill develop as a comic over the past few years and he never fails to impress. Super intelligent, dark and funny as hell. He opened for superstar comic Jim Jefferies in arenas and looked like he was meant to be there.
James McCann. I love James McCann. The last show I saw of his, ‘Devil's Advocate’, a brilliant idea, where on the spot he attempts to justify the audience's indefensible statements, was genius. Always highly watchable and one of the smartest performers you’ll see. And another Adelaide local to boot.
Denise Scott, Cal Wilson, Geraldine Hickey & Lizzy Hoo – 'Chicksal 500'.What a line-up! I love compilation shows. If you don’t like one comic there will be another one along soon. Not that there is any filler in this bill. This will easily will be one of the hottest shows at the Fringe. Four ace comics at the top of their game.
Nat’s What I Reckon. I love Nat’s cool look, his cooking videos and straight talk and I’m not alone. He has become a viral sensation and comes to Adelaide on the back of a successful book too. I don’t know what this show will be about, but that’s the joy of Adelaide Fringe – taking a punt. If the show is anything like his videos it will be hilarious and cool as f...!
Jeff Green plays Rhino Room (Adelaide Fringe) 19-27 February.
