Laughing Stock Productions Presents 'Heath Franklin's Chopper - The Line Up' running as part of The Adelaide Fringe Festival at The Garden of Unearthly Delights - Magic Mirror Spiegeltent at 7:00pm on February 22nd, for one night only. The man with the best mustache in town is back in Adelaide. His show on Feb 22nd was another great night of comedy like he presents whenever hes here. This year's show, 'The Line Up', featured Franklin as Chopper the presenter, where he discusses sex robots and Donald Trump, followed by three hilarious comedians - Ivan Aristeguieta, Sammy J and Eddie Ifft.

Ivan Aristeguieta took to the stage first with a hilarious set based on the differences of living here in Australia compared to his country. He's not knocking Venezuela, there is differently privileges to living there; here in Australia we charge $5 per mango, in Venezuela mangoes are free.

The second act was Sammy J and his piano featured two hit songs 'You Held My Hand' and one from his new Fringe show 'Hero Complex' called 'See You in Seventeen Years'. His show always features hilarious anecdotes that leave the crowd holding their ribs from laughter. Sammy J is now a father and wants his friends to know he's too busy to party with them at the moment, but to hold his place because he will see them in Seventeen years, when his daughter is 18. 'You Held My Hand' is about a bumpy plane right where the guy next to him grabs his hand. This is a hilarious song and recreates the scenario in your head.

Eddie Ifft was Choppers final act he doesn't believe in monogamy, but he would never cheat either, because his wife would slit his throat. His set features anecdotes on different religions and why they are good or bad. He talks about religions that allow you to have 8 wives and he says "you think that would be good right? No, they are wives, means no sex times 8".

If you missed out on seeing this one time show, then you can still catch Ivan Artisteguieta, Sammy J and Eddies Iftt's solo shows at The Garden of Unearthly Delights this Fringe Season.
