I hope everyone had a wonderful Melbourne Fringe this year. The best thing about Fringe is discovering performers who are being daring and brilliant. It’s always fun to pop into the Fringe Club too and discover a performer or show on stage who you may have overlooked in print.
Our congratulations to all the Award Winners and especially to comedy legend Bob Franklin. A jaw dropping show that had me crying with laughter.
I’m not listing all the Winners here, just the ones that may interest our niche readers. Though if you are especially keen on furniture (or any of the wide range of Fringe Arts), check out the website.
