The ultimate 80s throwback: Matt Hale’s Top Fun hypnotic show set to rock Adelaide Fringe

Matt Hale’s viral hit, Top Fun: 80s Hypnosis Spectacular is ready to transport you back to the 80s at this year’s Adelaide Fringe.

Get ready to break out your leg warmers and tease up your hair because the ultimate retro experience is hitting the Adelaide Fringe this summer. Matt Hale’s viral hit, Top Fun: 80s Hypnosis Spectacular – The Remix, is gearing up to transport you back to the decade of neon and synth-pop with a twist that’s fresher than a pair of crisp white sneakers.

Following an electrifying debut last year, Matt Hale has skyrocketed to international acclaim, with his social media videos racking up over 50 million views and a completely sold-out season at the Edinburgh Fringe. Now, Hale is bringing it all back home to Adelaide with a show that’s been supercharged with more 80s anthems and an extra dose of party spirit.

‘The love for the 80s is undeniable across oceans, borders, and age groups’, says Matt. ‘Top Fun is my most adored show, and it deserved a pimp-up! Adelaide is going to get a fresh new ride with extra party vibes and more 80s bangers that will blow the roof!’

For one hour, Matt Hale will be your guide through a laughter-infused hypnosis bonanza, perfect for anyone over 18 years old willing to take the stage. Expect a wild journey filled with air guitars, impromptu stardom, peculiar sounds, and those dance moves you thought you’d forgotten.

But it’s not just about the laughs at Top Fun—Hale’s hypnosis show aims to shatter clichés and offers an enlightening glimpse into the power and potential of hypnotism, minus the swinging watches. It’s a family-friendly affair that invites everyone to dive into the wonders of the mind.

With his roots in the UK and now based in Perth, Hale has won multiple awards for his comedic genius and is renowned for creating a celebratory atmosphere wherever he goes. Critics have sung their praises for Top Fun, with Review Edinburgh commenting, ‘fun-filled show—has you dancing & singing to the music’!’, Weekend Notes saying, ‘laugh until your sides hurt!’, and The Advertiser claiming, ‘Stomach grabbing humour … not to be missed!’

With only 14 exclusive shows at Gluttony, starting Tuesday, 5th March, and running through to Sunday, 17th March (excluding Mondays), make sure you grab your perm-lovin’, stonewashed denim-wearing friends and book your tickets for this trip down memory lane today!

Tickets are expected to vanish faster than a VHS tape at a garage sale, so grab yours and prepare for an evening where you can laugh, dance, and sing like it’s 1989.

‘People need an escape, a break from their worries, and pure unadulterated fun’, Matt adds. ‘An 80s party will do just that!’
