Went to my final fringe show on Saturday night, which was Barefaced Stories in New Zealand, at Bats.
It’s a simple but effective concept. Two Perth entertainers compere a session of story telling, with five locals getting up and telling a true story.
The first story was my favourite – the girl who went to a Flavour Flav show and then got invited back stage, and then out to a drink at a bar and finally up to his hotel room.
Also amusing was the guy who was so hung up on his ex girlfriend, he was unsure whether to go back to a tent with two girls who invited him in.
Another story was more sad, about suicide.
To a degree the highlights were actually the two Perth entertainers. They read out extracts from the diaries they both wrote as 14 year old teenage girls. The passages were often hilarious.
The show lasted around 80 minutes. Was on for one night only. Would go to a similar show again.
