Review by Kieran Eaton

Often when we think of comedians- we don’t usually think of fathers, do we? The good news is there are comedic fathers out there and I am not just talking about the ones who do dad jokes. Who’s your Daddy? is a stellar line up of some of FRINGEWORLD 2017’s best fathers and stand-up comedians!

This show is created by veteran comedian, Terry North who an ex-Pat Brit and has some memorable times with his children. The show has been going on for many years now and the strong reputation built has allowed it to get stronger every time. North, the compare for these night brings on a rotating line up of about four comics, all with unique takes on parenthood.

When North strolls on casually, you know the night will be easy going. His friendly vibe warms up the crowd with jokes about how his children find him embarrassing. When the first act of this night Lindsey Webb opens by interacting with the crowd with strong self-awareness, you know the funnies are going to roll and they do.  Mickey D follows with a larrikin take on family life. We then see Tahir Bilgic surprise us with his experiences as a teacher. The night is ended with Greg Fleet confronting us with a reminder that even though little ones honesty can be cute, it can also be scary! There is so much laughter through the show it makes us smile about the challenges of bringing children into the world.

Who’s your Daddy? is a great show for all, especially those daddies out there!
