Boogies, pop-offs and stinky smells
Mark Trenwith presents Mr Snot Bottom's Stinky Silly Songs at this year's Adelaide Fringe Festival and you had better prepare yourself for 50 minutes of deeeesgusting, ooeeey, gooey, gross jokes and songs about boogies, bottoms, pop-offs and stinky smells!
In mid-2017, I took my two grandsons to see Mr Snot Bottom and, more than 6 months later, they still talk about his show and how funny it was. When I mentioned that Mr Snot Bottom was coming to the Adelaide Fringe, they just about turned themselves inside out with excitement. My grandies love Mr Snot Bottom so much that we bought one of his DVDs and it gets watched endlessly.
The gags are hysterically disgusting and the songs are about all things stinky and gross. To give you an idea about the delightful disgustingness of this show, check out some of his song titles: "Ghost In My Loo", "I Lived in Your Guts" & "My Head Exploded".
Don't for a moment think that this show is for the little kids. The big kids in the audience will laugh as loud as any of the pint-sized ones. If you don't have a young one to bring with you as an .... ummm..... excuse - then just go ahead and buy a ticket for yourself. This show is pure entertainment - it's tasteless, it's horrendous and it's simply hilarious.
Mark Trenwith is Mr Snot Bottom. "The show is very much designed for parents and children to share together," says Mark. "It makes me sad going to a show and seeing kids at the front and parents at the back not interacting with each other. That doesn't happen in my shows. Nothing makes me happier than seeing a Mum or Dad and child laugh together and share the performance as a family."
Mark has been performing stand up comedy for fifteen years and has performed in many children's stage and TV shows including Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends and Ben Ten, The Live Experience. He's also a superhero! When he's not Mr Snot Bottom, he becomes Captain Starlight who entertains the sick kiddies at the Melbourne Children's Hospital. Mark won 'Adelaide Comedian of The Year' in 2010.
Mr Snot Bottom's Stinky Silly Songs can be seen at The Factory, in the Garden of Unearthly Delights. Get your tickets, grab the kids and take them to this show - they, and you, will love it!
