Fringe World casts its net wide and deep and some very strange catch is trawled up as a result.

Two such odd fish are Damian Callinan and Paul Calleja, The Wine Bluffs.

The Wine Bluffs differ from wine buffs in that they know more about corks than wine and bottles than grapes, but they do know to squeeze laughter out of an audience.

The show is very interactive indeed. If you don't want to dance with Paul or Damo, don't sit in the front row and if you're not prepared to enter into the spirit of things don't go, you won't enjoy it.

But if you enjoy broadish humour, wine and collegiate theatre, you'll have a good time. You'll learn how to go on a wine bus tour, match wines with Chick Rolls and Paddle Pops and open a bottle without a corkscrew.

This is not 'theatre with a message', a significant theatrical experience or will move you deeply - it's light-hearted fun and games.

It runs until the 4th of February at the Noodle Palace. And another really positive point is you can try the Bao at Baby Chan's the hawker style kiosk put up by Lucky Chan's Laundry and Noodlebar. They are exceptional.
