LMA Family Represents at Sydney Fringe Festival
Laugh-Masters Academy is proud to have students, teachers and Alumni alike participating in this year’s Fringe Festival here in Sydney. For those who don’t know about Fringe, this is the largest independent arts festival in New South Wales for the 7th year in a row. In 2016, Sydney Fringe presents over 300 productions in over 50 venues all over Sydney celebrating local artists such as LMA Improvisers. The festival runs from 1-30 September 2016. We invite you to check out all of the shows and to join us celebrating the best of independent artists in Sydney.
Tickets for the festival can be purchased here. Make sure to check out the following LMA peeps’ shows:
Sophie Long - The Wendigo Presented by Hustle Productions
Recently returned from Chicago, Sophie Long brings her one woman show, The Wendigo, to the Sydney Fringe Festival for its Australian debut. Sophie Long is a teacher at Laugh Masters Academy. This surreal Horror Comedy blends storytelling and sketch to weave a nightmarish tale of terror, where grotesque and wickedly funny characters beckon you into a bizarre world of macabre delights. Get ready to be shocked, amused and appalled by this hilariously freaky comedy. Come in – don’t be afraid. What’s the worst that could happen?
Define Happy - Presented by Hustle Productions
Do you like factories? Do you like theatres? Do you like hijinks?
You: “Yes, I like that. I would like those things in September 2016.”
Us: “Yeah well good luck with that, sport. Oh wait, there’s this show on. Go check it out.”
Define Happy is comprised of Christopher Attrill, LMA’s Nishita Merchant and LMA’s Liz Prasad.
Death and Dating by Over Under
One feels like the end. The other feels like….well, the end. Death and dating takes you on an uproarious exploration of human interaction and frailty, in it’s most basic incarnations. Take a gleeful glance into how we deal with life changing events in the most light hearted way. The group is called Over Under Improv. Performers from the LMA family are Kate O’Keeffe, June Waldenberger, Tony Starr, and David Tieck.
Sue Thomas in Another Bite of the Cherry
Two shows (Friday 16 Sept. and Sunday 18 Sept, 8 pm each night). Sue Thomas tells her hilarious erotic fan fiction stories, laced with humorous insights into the world of Sue Thomas. This year she will be accompanied by some of her friends who will perform at intervals throughout the show. Jasmine Langdon, Christie Cook and Georgina Giannikopoulos from the LMA family are bringing sketches to this amazing show.
And so much more!
We look forward to having even more up and coming talent at this amazing festival in the years to come.
Get your tickets now to watch your fellow LMA people in action. You can find more information on the Fringe Website. There is never been a better time to support Aussie comedy. If you haven’t had your fix of great comedy by the end of September, come to our graduation shows.
