Sparkling and delicious Melbourne sketch comedy at Fringe

Melbourne International Comedy Festival Golden Gibbo award-winning sketch comedy duo Pét-Nat and Han ah Chocolat will make their Adelaide Fringe Festival debut in The Chapel at The Migration Museum from the 28th of February until the 5th of March.

Pét-Nat and Han ah Chocolat is the pairing of Nat Harris, a writer for The Project and Triple R radio personality and film-maker and clown Hannah Camilleri.

During peak Melbourne COVID-lockdowns, Nat and Hannah met in the park and tried to make each other laugh; a show was born. The talented solo performers discovered that they had much to learn from each other. "We come from different backgrounds for sure. When we first started exploring ideas together, it was a real revelation for me the way that Hannah approaches her works through her clown training. She brought me a red nose", Nat says.

"I had always done sketches and performing but I think it was more thinking about the idea as the starting point and the physical aspect would come second. It opened up so many possibilities for me: it still terrifies me but we're still very much at the tip of the iceberg."

"Nat is very quick and I feel like I'm a bit slower. We have different energies", Hannah adds. "Nat trusts herself more with improvisation and words"

While a Melbourne critic labelled them "The Queens of Cringe", Nat and Hannah, who take inspiration from Kath and Kim and Broad City, aim to create characters and sketches that are relatable above all else.

"I don't think we're intentionally trying to be cringe; we're trying to be sophisticated. It's high brow, high brow", Nat jokes "We play in a space where the audience doesn't exactly know where it's going for a period of time, so they're probably wincing for us."

Pét-Nat and Han ah Chocolat will be staged in one of the two exciting new Adelaide Fringe venues to be housed at The Migration Museum, The Chapel. The venues, the brainchild of Frank Theatre's Britt Plummer and Werewolves' Nick Phillips, offer intimate comedic, interactive and musical offerings for discerning Fringe audiences.

This festival season, there are plenty of reasons to venture beyond the east parklands to The Chapel and Yurt at The Migration Museum.
