Peter Combe

Adelaide Fringe. The Vagabond – Garden of Unearthly Delights. 24 Feb 2013



The steamy Vagabond, nestled at the eastern end of the Garden of Unearthly Delights, plays host to Peter Combe's kids-oriented 'Quirky Berserky (The Turkey from Turkey)'.


This fringe show features new songs and old favourites, including Newspaper Mama and Spaghetti Bolognaise, which are performed by Combe with a mix of live keyboards from Phil Cunneen and pre-recorded backing tracks.


Combe is a very parent-friendly performer who has long perfected the art of entertaining children without the need for fantastical, non-human creatures whose illegible babbling is educationally counter-productive.


The show provided great sing-a-longs that are fun, catchy and enjoyable for both carers and kids alike. Combe continues to prove his worth as a preeminent children’s entertainer.


Accompanied by an enthusiastic and brightly dressed dance troupe from theatre bugs, he successfully kept the audience of young fans dancing in the isle and their seats.  ‘Quirky Berserky’ is a fun and friendly show for all ages.
