From the oldest culture on earth comes the freshest, fiercest and funniest stand-up around. Cheeky, loud, black and proud, featuring the brightest stars in Australian comedy: Kevin Kropinyeri, Andy Saunders and Steph Tisdell (winner, Pinder Prize 2019). A unique comedy experience with great big belly laughs from the heart of the wide brown land. 'Any qualms about whether non-indigenous people would be able to laugh at the content are quickly quashed. This show is belly-aching, cheek hurting, hilarious' ***** (Advertiser, Adelaide).

Great sets from all three comedians. Funny throughout with spot on observational humour and audience interaction. Loved it. See them if you can when they tour to London at the end of the Fringe.

Five stars, brilliant performance. It was sold out when I went and we were lucky to be at the front. Kevin kicked off the show explaining some aboriginal truths with laughs, Steph's expressiveness and laugh rate on stage needs to be seen ti be believed and Andy's use of physicality for laughs I've never seen the like of. We had an amazing time.

This show is deadly and one of the most enjoyable I’ve experienced at The Fringe. Kevin Kropinyeri is a charmingly funny MC, Steph Tisdale is beyond brilliant, and Andy Saunders offers physical comedy steps above the usual. I feel very lucky they all decided to come over to Edinburgh and am delighted to have caught this show.

Sure you don’t know me but I still recommend this highly.

The Scotsman (3/5 stars) 101 days ago

This is a friendly, funny hour. And the first time Aboriginal comedy has gone international, says one of the three comics on the bill (best not mention that to Craig Quartermaine). But this trio are more mainstream than Quartermaine, although, for First Nation comics, politics pretty much comes, as it...
