Darwin Comedians Smash Adelaide Fringe Opening Weekend!

comedy ladies

Three girls, three days, 18 shows… look out Adelaide Fringe Festival Darwin’s funny ladies are coming at you. 

Top End Comedy is thrilled to announce that three of our  comedians have been invited to perform at the Adelaide Fringe Festival. Darwin ladies Danielle Andrews, Rachael Bettiens and Amy Hetherington will each perform six shows across the first weekend of Fringe, after they impressed international comedian Nik Coppin during a local performance.

Nik Coppin, an internationally recognised comedian and comedy producer, was in Darwin to run workshops and perform with local comedy collective Top End Comedy. During the sell-out performance Coppin was particularly impressed with Andrews, Bettiens and Hetherington and initially offered them a spot in a ladies showcase at Adelaide Fringe. However, within a week, Coppin had contacted them to offer 18 spots at his shows during the opening weekend of Adelaide Fringe. Obviously these are funny ladies.

Andrews, Bettiens and Hetherington will participate in a range of showcases including Shaggers: comedy about shagging, Adeladies: a showcase of funny ladies from across Australia and the best of Adelaide Fringe and Afternoon Fringe showcases. Andrews, who works as a children’s performer, will also perform at Huggers: a series of family-friendly comedy shows

Make sure you let your Southern friends and family know and get a crowd to support the Darwin girls!
