Stephen K Amos - Laughter is my Agenda

Arts Theatre.  29 Feb 2012.


No stranger to the Adelaide Fringe, Stephen K Amos returned to the Arts Theatre for yet another go at making Adelaide chuckle.


Boldly stating Laughter is my Agenda, he happily succeeded with an eager and vocal Wednesday night crowd.


In true Amos fashion, his new show is full of slightly wrong but always funny quips and tales, mainly focussed on his childhood as one half of a twin set in family of seven children.  Making light of his parent's 'interesting' (read: concerning) child-rearing techniques, Amos keeps his audience gasping and laughing with a torrent of family stories and his own take on parenthood, the value of one versus multiple offspring, and the political woes of "Goulia Jillard" and the Australian Labour Party.


Over the hour-long show, Amos balanced a smooth mix of improv and pre-written material, and his comedy credentials were on show as he handled some bizarre heckling with practised ease.


Always a good laugh, this show shouldn't disappoint those familiar with Amos's previous appearances.  Grab a seat for a funny night out.

When: 23 Feb -11 Mar
