Review | Peter Spence
Refreshing, real, comical, raw, cathartic and captivating! Here is a show that will take you through the widest range of emotions, making you actually feel something, stronger than anything any other act can make you feel.
Laughter – and plenty of it, as you would expect from one of Perth’s most established comedians, Colin Ebsworth, who has been on the scene since his teens, and still going strong almost a decade later. A FRINGEWORLD main stay, his award nominated performances have sold out countless shows over the years.
Let’s be honest though, with the title Me, My Cult and I, and with the show description telling us it was about him growing up in a cult family, we are ALL here to hear some crazy stories about life within a cult, and to be honest we aren’t disappointed.
What we weren’t betting on was the raw emotional rollercoaster of depth into the most interesting lifetime of the Ebsworth family. Not a typical slide-night at your grandparents, but with a few pictures for reference, Ebsworth brings us in and gives us an autobiography worth watching. Crazy cult stories – don’t worry they are there, and they are as entertaining as you could ever imagine, and some you wouldn’t want believe!
A dark yet beautiful view of a family who were more than met the eye, which laid the personal foundation to one of the most entertaining people in the comedy scene and FRINGEWORLD 2022. A born entertainer, Ebsworth takes a step aside from his comedy roots and live late-night shows, to bring you a show that will make you laugh a real laugh and cry a real tear. Certainly a more refreshing take on a show than anything else you’ll see this year.
You can join the cult at The Goodwill Club until 13th February 2022 with an extra show on the 17th. TICKETS
