Deadly Funny








Whitefellas take note – Indigenous comedy is on the rise.

Proving his ‘mob’ does indeed have a funny bone, Kevin Kropinyeri is determined to crack the mainstream and teach white (and black) audiences a thing or two in the process.

In town for his Fringe show ‘Welcome to my World’, Kevin promises a high-energy, up-tempo performance with a strong focus on family ties; after all, the biggest strength of being Aboriginal is family.

Then again, it’s also the biggest weakness, as the lads from Streetcast later found out…

Gettin’ Loose

The Loose Five








With seamless banter, chilled out guests and ample lol’age, ‘The Loose Five’ is one pod pod* worth dedicating a Saturday arvo (post-Streetcast) listening to.

Presenters Marcel Blanch-de Wilt and Paul K Stalenhoef unite every week to record, usually at Marcel’s house, producing some quality com com* for their fans’ earholes.

Duly recognised as a ‘New and Noteworthy’ podcast on iTunes, keep an eye out for Loose Five-related merchandise and possible cult expeditions.

A Laughing Matter

A Laughing Matter







Although it may have briefly cost him his sanity, Marcus Doherty’s decision to lock himself away in his family’s holiday house for a week paid dividends.

Seven days later, he emerged with a near-completed script of ‘A Laughing Matter’, a six-part sketch comedy series that took just over a year to complete.

Debuting this Wednesday on Channel 44, the show is a testament to Adelaide’s promising young actors, comedians and filmmakers.

Marcus and fellow actor and co-writer Leigh Qurban give Streetcast’s Tom Angley a behind the scenes look at what lies ahead…

Oh and remember to help Marcus and co get 7 BILLION LIKES by Wednesday!

Raw Talent










Don’t let the big red nose and face paint fool you – getting a laugh out of Frehd Southern-Starr is tougher than it looks.

When she’s not blowing bubbles as her ‘Frehd Astarr’ clown alter ago, Frehd runs SA’s Raw Comedy events, organising entrants and ensuring stand-up novices are well looked after.

Frehd, who’s ran Raw Comedy for the past decade, says the competition is a great platform for aspiring comics to strut their stuff, though she’s quick to point out that it’s not the end of the world if you don’t make it all the way to the Melbourne final.

In fact, hearing Frehd giggle in the crowd might be the ultimate prize after all…
