Adelaide hold onto your hats, because intellectual rock star Stephen Fry, front of all wisdom and panacea of all global problems, is coming to town.
That’s right folks, November just became Yes-vember, and the Adelaide Festival Centre just became the Adelaide Best-ival Centre, and this particular writer has a nerd-boner tall enough to ride most rollercoasters.
Timing his visit to coincide with the 40-year anniversary of legislation passing that decriminalised homosexuality, it is easy to feel as though we’re being rewarded for the eventual wisdom of our fore-fathers (thanks dudes).

Here’s to hoping our collective embarrassment might spur some further legislative changes!
The QI host will be interviewed by esteemed journalist Annabel Crabb and the forecast is sunshine with a high chance of knowledge-bombs plummeting from the skies. Tickets went on sale yesterday, so you’ll probably want to get around that quick smart. Oh, and did we mention that all proceeds of the event are going to the Don Dunstan Foundation, a South Australian social justice organisation, because, you know, Good-Guy Stephen.
Catch Stephen Fry at the Adelaide Festival Centre on the 29th of November. Tickets through BASS.
