Grant Busé: SentiMENTAL!

Sentimental adelaide fringe 2022★★

Adelaide Fringe. The Kingfisher at Gluttony. 11 Mar 2022


This is a show that puts a smile on your face at the very start, broadens it as tears of laughter start to flow, and leaves it there long after it’s over. It is an energetic, song and oh-so-funny dance fuelled feel-good show that reaches out to and draws in all age groups. In short, it’s great fun, but it’s not just froth and bubble – it is also thoughtful and provocative.


Grant Busé is easy on the eye, has a warm and engaging personality, sings well, plays a mean guitar, tells funny jokes, and writes his own songs. He’s got it all. His show, SentiMENTAL, is a tongue-in-cheek mockery of nostalgia. With dizzying speed, he celebrates everything in popular culture that we never wanted to know (and want to forget), currently do know (but wish we didn’t), and will probably ever know. It doesn’t matter whether you’re on the right side of twenty years of age or the wrong side of sixty, Busé identifies your sacred and not-so-sacred cows and happily slaughters them all to guffaws of laughter from the audience.


This is a show with some audience participation, but, importantly, it is totally non-threatening. It is so joyful that members of the audience are almost disappointed when they are not ‘chosen’.


This is a fun show!
