Adelaide Fringe

Our top Comedy picks for Adelaide Fringe 2022

With so many shows to see this year, these are our must-see comedy picks at the Adelaide Fringe for 2022.

We sure are glad that festival season is upon us but with so much to do and see it can be a little daunting to know what to attend.

We’ve done the hard work for you and compiled the most-anticipated comedy acts at the Fringe this year!

Drag Show the Game Show

Comedy/Drag

Join The Beastie Girls and battle for supremacy over your rival house. Compete in teams for the crown in a variety of drag challenges to see which Beastie Girl’s house will reign supreme.

YouTube superstars The Beastie Girls have sold out Fringe shows in Melbourne, starred in Troye Sivan’s “Easy” Music Video and now join Adelaide Fringe for the first time. Drag Show The Game Show is a once in a lifetime interactive experience that brings to life the full spectrum of drag that some have deemed “complete chaos.”
