Started as a blog for my fringe reviews in 2010, it is about to transmogrify into all my reviewy outpourings about Fringe, cabaret, rock gigs and movies. I hope you will enjoy.

LATE NIGHT NUMBERS & LETTERS
Late Night Numbers & Letters
The Science Exchange (Exchange Place, Adelaide)
9:30pm til Sat Feb 27
The SBS TV show Numbers and Letters was much loved and clearly is still missed.
Based on the UK
show Countdown which is currently in it's 73rd season, it's a game show where
people have to find words in collections of randomly selected letters and do
maths equations with similarly random numbers while racing against the clock. It's the geek/nerds perfect game show. Now add comedians (and often alcohol) and you
have Late Night Numbers & Letters. Returning for it's third year, Late Night
has found an eager audience of dictionary challenging wordsmiths and
calculating mathematicians. Hosted by lovable Melbourne curmudgeon, Nick Caddaye with guest comedian dictionary guardians and contestants each night, Late Night Numbers &
Letters manages to stay close to the originals format and intent, while being
utterly hilarious at the same time. Unlike the TV show there are actual prizes
to be won. The Science Exchange is tucked away in Exchange Place in the city (enter from Pirie Street).
