This year’s Adelaide Fringe promises to be one of the best yet. The 2012 program features a record-breaking 4,000 artists in 923 events, including 250 comedy acts, 130 theatre shows, 170 concerts, 100 cabaret shows and 110 art and design exhibitions. Additional categories include circus, dance, special events, film and puppetry.
And who might the 250 comedy acts be? You can find a parade of posters at Adelaide Comedy’s website which shows a lot of them, but forgive me if I haven’t actually made a list of the lot for you.
Many of the internationals will, of course, be also going on to other comedy festivals in Melbourne, Sydney. Perth and Brisbane before they fly back home, so most of the nation can look forward to seeing them sometime this year.
