Two very distinct comedians in this split-billed show
The RiAus in the old Stock Exchange building was the venue for this split billed show featuring two very different comedians as part of the Adelaide Fringe Festival.

Seaton Kay-Smith delivers an astonishing, off-the-wall performance in his show Where Why Where?, as he attempts to address some of the big questions of life such as: Where did we come from?, and Why are we here? Looking like, in his own words, a "demented buccaneer" he delivers (sometimes corny) rapid-fire one-liners to open the show. The second half moves into the bizarre and ridiculous and includes a poem, chilli-eating, fairytales and even a schizophrenic voiceover. It's as if one of the Marx brothers shagged Salvadore Dali!

Jazz Twemlow offers a perfect counterbalance to the zany opening performance in his stand-up show Earth, may contain traces of human. A thinking man's comic, this science-nerd loves to dissect human behaviour with intellectual-based arguments. Jazz is a likeable, self-deprecating comedian who explores science v tradition/religion, pseudo science, faith and superstition in his clever observations and comparisons. I left the show wanting more, particularly about his stories of living above a shop in Kings Cross!
