Famous Sharron: The Darling of Fringe & Queen of the Selfie

THE DARLING OF FRINGE AND THE QUEEN OF THE SELFIE IS BACK!

They might claim that the word selfie originated in Australia in 2002, but we all know it was coined by Perth’s own, Famous SHARRON back in 1995, when she first took a photo of herself at the Year 11 School Social. That was the night she met her first of three husbands. Dubbed The Darling of Fringe at Fringe World (AUS), your favourite, fabulously funny, Famous SHARRON, is back to play The Fame Game with you - live and IMPROVISED!

Get ready for more glitz, glamour and scandal as Famous SHARRON presents a comedy improv show that can only be described as Whose Line Is It Anyway? in spandex meets Thank God You’re Here with sparkles.

“It is easy to see why Sharron is destined for a life in the spotlight.” THE WEST AUSTRALIAN

“You’ve got a real face for radio, darling.” – SHARRON’S MUM

“Can you babysit the kids tonight, Shaz?” – SHARRON’S HUSBAND, DARREN

“Who needs a babysitter when you’ve got central locking?” SHARRON

Having featured celebrity guests such as Lord Mayor Lisa Scaffidi, UK Cabaret Stars Frisky & Mannish, Kymba Cahill from The Big Couch and even Benny Reuben from Textile Traders in 2013, watch as SHARRON attempts to skyrocket a brand new line-up of local celebs and audience members alike into the Famesphere. Together with her fabulous Famettes, Andrea Gibbs (Maylands), Sean Walsh (Bassendean) and Sam Longley (Fremantle) from The Big Hoo Haa, Sharron will be throwing wannabe starlets into all sorts of live improvised ‘famous situations’ to bring out the A-list in them.

Fresh from touring across Australia and New Zealand, as well as being hand-picked to host festivals and awards ceremonies across Western Australia, SHARRON is delighted to be back in New Zealand for Fringe in 2014 “Darls, last year I though the Fringe was a hairdresser’s convention, wasn’t I surprised?! This year, I can’t wait to party with you all in Wellington, dolls!” said SHARRON.

SHARRON will also be hosting the Awards night for the New Zealand Fringe Festival!

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
