Matt Byrne's new nautical comedy, The Luv Boat, is currently playing at Maxims Wine Bar for a strictly limited season.

This critically acclaimed nautical production takes audiences on an unforgettable two hour 'Off Their Rockers South Seizures Sunset Cruise' aboard the 'S.S. Unthinkable' – better known as 'The Luv Boat'.

Directed, produced and written by Matt Byrne, this world-premiere production stars Kim York as Butterfly, Marc Clement as Nerfus, Stefanie Rossi as Sammy and Matt Byrne as Captain Obvious.

Byrne has had great success with his original Fringe comedies including, Virgins, Chalkies, PIGS, WAGS, The Penis Principles, Bogans, and Chunderbelly, and with his latest venture, he will whisk audiences off to Gilligan's Island, The Titanic and Pirates of The Rear Cabin!

"Everyone has gone cruising crazy in recent years so it's time to see what life is like on board the S.S. Unthinkable as everyone goes looking for love," Byrne said.

"Captain Obvious, Entertainment Director Butterly United, her pumped up protégé Salmon Ella Voyage and Petty Officer Nerfus Wreck will give punters the greatest cruise they've ever been on this week – and we are the only Fringe show that guarantees everyone a lei!"

"And as it's the 'Off Their Rockers South Seizures Sunset Tour', we meet some of the most forgotten rock singers of all time, from Helen EverReady to Silly Thorpe, Joan Jetty and Whispering Jock, who's determined to find his manager and settle accounts!"

"There's sex starved seniors, ballsy bingo, movies, island visits, Kiwi karaoke, American and British family feuds and an embedded giraffe … all in all enough comedy to sink a ship!"

"It's fast, it's frenetic and its crazy but you'll split your sides as the Captain and his crew try to keep everybody happy on 'The Luv Boat' and avoid the melting icebergs!" Byrne said.

Everyone is loving Matt Byrne's Luv Boat at Maxims Wine Bar. Critics and crowds getting on board nautical Fringe comedy at Norwood!
