It’s gunna be an absolute stinker.
Relieve yourself this Fringe Festival opening weekend with the most hilarious, glamorous, ludicrous show you’ll ever lay your watering eyes upon - The Shit Show. It’s a crap cabaret, a steaming spektacular, a veritable defecation degustation. No, we’re not sh*tting you - it really is a variety show all about poop.
So, don’t stall - make a movement to the FAFF Club, pull up a stool, and flush your night right down the John. It might not be the best show you’ve ever seen, but it’ll be a solid number two.
Luke Gumbley as The Handsome Hand Soap,
Maxwell Apse as The Singing Toilet Brush,
Laura Oakley as The Flying Fart,
The Bloated Ballerinas,
Jerome Chandrahasen with explosive comedy,
and an all-poop can-can troupe called The Little Shits.
Hosted by the asshole himself, Hugo Grrrl - in what will be his last full-scale Wellington production before he bog-rolls himself off to live in the turd-town of Auckland. Get your tickets now to witness the retirement of the capital’s most notorious verbal diarrhetic as he proves that he, quite literally, does not give a shit anymore.
For those of the faint of heart, please note that there will be no realistic depictions of poop, nor any foul smells. Will it be rude and hilarious? Yes. Actually nauseating? Unless you count Hugo’s puns, no.
Butt wait, there’s more!
Why not bask in our steaming aroma? Stick around for the farty after party. DJ Tucker will be dropping fat beats, plus drink specials and good vibes at the FAFF Club all night long. It’s the place to pee, I mean, be, this Fringe Fest opening weekend.
