March is a super exciting and busy time of the year in Adelaide. A handful of festivals and events roll through the city, including the Fringe Festival which brings the city to life for the month! I never seem to attend as many Fringe events as I'd like. Every year I promise to make more of an effort, and every year I'm severely disappointed when I feel I haven't been to enough. However, this year was different.. I managed to make time to actually get among the action, and I seen some really cool shows - including some that I probably wouldn't normally go to. But I'm here to tell you a little about one show in particular - Matt Tarrant: Unsolved.
So last year, my friend Paul Dabek who comes down and performs at the Adelaide Fringe Festival every year linked me in with Matt. I was really hoping to catch his show last year, but it just didn't end up happening. But, you better believe it was at the top of my to do list this year. Let me tell you a little about Matt.. He's from Adelaide. And this year was his 8th year performing at the Adelaide Fringe Show (not to mention, every year he brings a brand new show to the festival and upgrades venue size each time). He's shows have not only been AWARD WINNING, but also SOLD OUT in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017! And after catching Matt perform, I totally understand why! This year he was right in the middle of the action in Gluttony, in a 600 capacity space. A bunch of shows sold out, and his show was one of the highest selling shows at the festival which is crazy at such a big event!
That's probably enough talking from me, I'll let you just check out some content and see for yourself! Two pals, one video, (a magic trick, and a pretty cool shirt that's sold out and completely out of stock possibly forever).
