With so many Fringe shows on offer, how do you choose which one will give you entertainment for your money? I would like to recommend a performer who ticks all the boxes.

Dado, a Canadian born clown who lives in Germany and performs in Australia, has three shows at the Adelaide Fringe: Waiting for Dado, Oddball: Comedy for Kids (read a review) and The Doorway Cabaret.

Waiting for Dado is a 40 minute interactive show featuring music boxes, dancing and bananas. It is rated PG for mild sexual references. Waiting for Dado is showing at 7.00pm from the 1 - 14 March.

Oddball, Comedy for Kids, is a laugh a minute for all ages. Bring the grandparents and bring the kids; everyone will enjoy this 40 minute show full of musical chickens, balloons and nonsensical magic.

Oddball, Comedy for Kids has two child-friendly performance times at 1.30pm and 2.25pm from 13 February - 14 March.

Dado will share the world of Mon Oncle le Bossu (my Uncle the hunchback) and his special guest "Eddie Only" from Holland in his Doorway Cabaret performances. These are a free glimpse into Dado's weird and wacky humour. Catch a 15 minute show on the hour from 5.00pm - 11.00pm most nights from 12 February- 14 March.

Your Comment
He's also part of the show Prohibition, in The Speakeasy each night at 9.45pm!

Having seen his kids show last year, I can vouch that he has that wonderful balance of things that both kids and adults find funny (so there's no problems with adults going to the kids show!)
