Mary Tobin Presents Eddie Ifft in his new Fringe show 'Man Child' running as part of The Adelaide Fringe Festival at The Garden of Unearthly Delights - Umbrella Revolution at 9:35pm from Feb 17th - March 19th.

Ifft's show 'Man Child' is about the constant struggle of being a parent when he's still a child himself. He tells the audience a story about having his daughter in the boot of his car and why he would never cheat on his wife, despite the fact that he doesn't believe in monogamy. To Ifft marriage is like fishing in a pond with one fish and every day you have to get excited you've caught the same one again.

He asked his wife hypothetically "If I cheated would you leave me?" Her response ,"No I would slit your throat in your sleep". He says every night he looks at her and says "we're good right?".

His set features anecdotes on different religions and why they are good or bad. Guests leave his show with the shock of 'did he really just say that', so only go see him if you have an open mind, love sarcasm and can take a joke. He talks about Mormons and how they used to have 8 wives; he says "you think that would be good right? No, they are wives, means no sex times 8". It's also "8 women you have to answer too when you come home late."

Ifft doesn't hold back pushing the boundaries as far as he can and Adelaide loved it. He says America fell asleep at the wheel, they had thing great with Obama, but then they got lazy and fell asleep and woke up to an Oompa Loompa running the country. His hour show isn't long enough; he had the crowd leaving with sore cheekbones from over-laughing.
