THE PHAT CAVE WITH MICKY D
Garden of Unearthly Delights
Remaining shows: Feb 25-26, march 11-12 (11:30pm)
There are several showcase gigs at this year’s fringe and Adelaide’s own MICKEY D and his PHAT CAVE is proving extremely popular. The line-up changes every night and the opening night was a stellar line up including amongst others ARJ BARKER, DAVE CALLAN, DEAD CAT BOUNCE and JUSTIN HAMILTON. With each act doing about ten minutes, they are all packing in the ha-ha’s to make their impact in a limited timeframe. Callan busts some moves and talks about fellating a pixie. Arj Barker does all new material so when people go to his show, you haven’t heard ten minutes of it already. “People in Adelaide are all so nice”, say Barker, “I guess it’s those signs all over town that say Polite’s”. Justin Hamilton tells a very funny story about an argument with a woman in a gym. Dead Cat Bounce are as always fan-bloody-tastic. Mickey D is loud and brash and Aussie as and this crowd loves him to bits. The house ‘band’ is DJ Tim Whitt who cuts it up at the intro and acts as D’s straight man/musical director and does a great job. Phat Cave is only on Friday and Saturday nights so mark them on your fringe calender.
