Adelaide Fringe '18 Review: That's A Fact That's Not Fun

Caitlin Ellen

There’s quite a number of political comedy shows out there today. With the current state of things, it’s an easy topic. So what sets That’s A Fact That’s Not Fun apart?

Maybe it’s that instead of a dig at the Trump Administration, it’s an analysis of the 30 years leading up to that dreaded November 9th election. That’s A Fact That’s Not Fun is like the coolest history class you’ve ever been in - and you’ve got the funny Gordon Southern as your teacher.

Starting from 1989 (the fall of the Berlin Wall for all you history buffs) to 2016 (the year of Brexit and Trump), Southern talks us through points of history that may show that 2016 wasn’t our sudden downfall. For once you won’t be groaning about Trump and the obvious rise of racism, instead you’ll be clapping your hand over your mouth to stifle loud laughter. Don’t stress about racking your brain to remember events you lived through or learnt about in History, Southern teaches in an easy, approachable way that’ll leave you with facts for your next pub quiz.

If you’re a History fan, you’ll love this. If you’re a Comedy fan, you’ll love this too. If you’re sick of hearing about Trump, you’ll grit your teeth and head along anyways.
