Gordon Southern is back and bringing his unique brand of edutainment to FringeWorld 2017!

His latest show, 'That's A Fun Fact!' follows the global sellout success of 'A Brief History of History' and will play at the Burt Memorial Hall for a strictly limited season from 27 January 2017.

"That's a fun fact" has become one of Southern's catch-phrases since his over ambitious and multi-award nominated 'History Show' of 2012. The 'History Show' was inspired by several seasons working behind the scenes on the hit BBC Show 'QI', where host Stephen Fry proved to be a big fan of his work.

The critically acclaimed comedian first came to prominence in 2004 and quickly became an audience favourite thanks to his insightful storytelling, observational comedy and dazzling improvisation.

Southern's shows continue to sell out in Edinburgh, Auckland, Melbourne, Sydney and Perth and he has also been nominated for 'best comedy' at Perth Fringe 2014-15 and was a 2014 New Zealand Comedy Guild 'best international act' nominee' and 2015 Time Out Dubai 'best live comedy show nominee'.


Southern is also an established comedy star in Britain. He is a regular at the world famous Comedy Store and has appeared on popular TV programmes such as BBC's 'The Stand Up Show' and 'Edinburgh Comedy'. In 2016, he recorded several TV shows for Australian TV including ABC's 'Comedy Up Late' and 'Stand and Deliver'.

Don't miss this opportunity to see Southern's latest show at part of FringeWorld 2017. Audiences are encouraged to bring along their own favourite facts and marvel at how Southern weaves them into his uplifting comedy experience!

Gordon Southern 'That's A Fun Fact! 'will play at Burt Memorial Hall, Cathedral Square, from the 27th to 30th January and 1st to 4th February 2017, 6.30pm.

Tickets are now on sale through and priced from $19.
