FRINGEWORLD 2022 | Always Woods Always Will Be | 4.5 Stars

Review | Peter Spence

Easily one of the funniest shows at FRINGEWORLD 2022, Fabian Woods brings his first headlining show home to WA. An absolute riot of a show, without a moment to breathe between a whole barrel of laughs. Always Woods Always Will Be features stories of life, family and politics in the city and outback, each are funnier than the last.

The tongue-in-cheek humour is hilarious and pokes fun at the view of life from both sides of the road, living in the city on the Armadale line, the Northbridge life and living in the land of heritage. While not sticking to the same covid joke scripts as every other comedian this year, he does touch on it and the political aspect of it, with a unique perspective, and without dividing the room.

Winner of the Deadly Funny 2019 grand final at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Woods has a comfortable flow on stage that makes you disappointed that his time on stage is kept to only one hour. Always Woods, Always Will Be is without a doubt one of this reviewer’s personal favourites, it is a refreshing change of pace from the over the top material, back to basics slap to the funny bone at FRINGEWORLD 2022. Downstairs in The Goodwill Club at The Rechabite, this is an hour of laughs you are not likely to forget.
