2018 Edinburgh Fringe, Aug 4 - 25, 9.35 PM
PBH Free Fringe
Ciao Roma Downstairs (Venue 283) 64 South Bridge
Since 2013, Australia is the origin of racist, science denying, sexist lying thugs who got elected Prime Minister. Trump is a shitty cover band. Brexit is a tribute act.
Fringe veteran and Australian satirist, Kieran Butler (**** Scotsman, **** Evening News), returns for a fifth year of his sold-out cult hit. Defamed by feminists and black-listed by the director of the Australian #micf, Butler is the enfant terrible of Australian comedy.
Australia produced the highest ranked Catholic to be charged
with child abuse – despite never doing a painting, or releasing
a novelty song. Australia is the petri dish that proved a dog-
whistling, fearmongering, science-denying homophobe could
win an election in a first world country in 2013. Since then,
Australia's penchant for torturing refugees, genocide, climate
change denial and Rolf Harris has inspired Brexit and Trump.
Now, we're all probably fucked!
Kieran Butler performed 'Australia is Fucked' to capacity crowds at edfringe between 2013 - 17, and proved why Australia is the cancer that now, to quote the immortal TISM, "circles the whole globe".
