Australian comedian Craig Quartermaine is a man of many talents. A truck driver who becomes a journalist then became a comedian. He was selected to participate in the second season of Australia's first Indigenous sketch comedy show, ABC TV's popular Black Comedy and today, this newcomer is rocking the world of comedy!

We had the pleasure of seeing Craig Quartermaine at Enmore Theatre and his incisive material cannot be disputed. The show was filled with laugh-out-loud humour and perfect deliverance and punchlines. It was easy to see why his show was a triumph at Edinburgh Fringe Festival and was tremendously received with 4 and 5-star reviews.
The Quaterblood Prince is not sure what he is either. He's too much one way, not far enough the other... but always stuck in the middle. Whether it is race, media or politics - everyone is faking it. Quartermaine is raring to make his Australian comedy festival debut and it doesn't look like he will be slowing down for you or your feelings.
Quartermaine's show was unique with biting perspective about his life as an Indigenous Australian and plenty of moments were dark wit sneaked upon you before smashing you in the face. His material was raw, politically incorrect and damn- right hilarious. He took us on a journey into his life as an Indigenous man married to a "white" woman and where race played a major part in his experiences.
Plenty of material combined insight with great gags and stories on experiencing how all Australians are treated. It was certainly a comedy powerhouse solo performance by The Quarterblood Prince!
