Yarn Spinning with Kitty Flanagan is the opening event of Word Adelaide’s four-day program and will celebrate two sacred Aussie traditions: telling tall stories and going to the pub.
Renowned Australian comic Kitty Flanagan will host the night at the Governor Hindmarsh Hotel on Thursday 15 August.
Yarn Spinning with Kitty Flanagan will be judged by the audience and offers more than $1000 in cash and prizes. It will also feature four guest yarn spinners who will make up their own bit of nonsense…
Guest yarn spinners are:
- Musician & songwriter John Schumann, best known from his time with the legendary folk/rock outfit Redgum
- Comedian and actor Eddie Bannon
- Public speaker and former Triple M radio announcer Sheridan Stewart
- ABC radio morning show presenter and journalist Ian Henschke
Kitty, who is a regular on Channel Ten’s The Project, said she looked forward to a night of unforgettable yarns.
