Bob Slayer Banned! Say “Sayonara Bob” this Saturday!

27 February 2012 5,667 views 3 Comments

Bob Slayer is an English comic who has an eminently Fringe-worthy approach to humour. Bob Slayer is the Adelaide Fringe – the outer boundary of it at times… His stand up routines are coarse, rude, outrageous and full of great off-the-cuff gags and spontaneous high-jinks and inebriated carry-on.

Sadly, it seems that Bob has become a little too larger-than-life, with The Austral’s management cancelling his remaining gigs at that venue, leaving this multi-award winning comic (I’ve seen him – he’s hilarious!) stuck for a venue to play.

Enter my good friends at Tuxedo Cat – who have provided Bob an opportunity for a final Adelaide show in their Blue Room on Saturday, March 3rd at 9:45pm.

The show itself is free, but Bob will be passing a hat around to top up his airfare home. This is a double opportunity… one for both Bob’s detractors and his supporters. If you’re a member of the former group, dig deep into your pockets and make sure he leaves!  If you’re a member of the latter (as I am), buy Bob a beverage and chip in some dosh to say “Thanks for the laughs and wild times.”

For those who forgot, the Adelaide Fringe is all about providing arts and entertainment for the rest of us – for Johnny Punter who has neither the cash or the inclination to see high-culture Arts events from the program of the Adelaide Festival of the Arts.  Surely, the duty of Fringe venues and promoters is to provide entertainment for everyone, but also to respect that not all entertainment will appeal to all people.

Bob Slayer is the embodiment of Fringe entertainment, and love him or hate him, he’s on his way home soon.  Give him the send-off he deserves!

Free comedy gig!
Tuxedo Cat Blue Room
199 North Terrace, Adelaide
Saturday, March 3rd at 9:45pm.
