Late Night Library: Stories from the Fringe
Kick off the Fringe in style with a night of tall tales, hidden histories and winding narratives at Kings Cross Library. Late Night Library opens the doors after dark to the city’s bookish spaces, invading them with cabaret, comedy, music and more. Join host, Maeve Marsden, with Annaliese Constable, JEKYLL X JAMES, Jeeves Verma and more of Sydney Fringe’s best comedians, musicians and storytellers for a free sample of their wit and weirdness, wine in hand.
Annaliese Constable is back to make you laugh through the pain and relate so hard you'll almost believe you're capable of empathy. At Queerstories Annaliese will explore the hotbed of mental illness that is her relationship (with the partial permission of her partner Emily). What is it that Emily is afraid of? Why is Emily relationshipping with an unproven human? How many stabbings is Emily hiding? Ms Constable, a recipient of the illustrious Newstart Allowance, will line your pockets with sound relationship advice and you will leave, at a minimum, proud of your life's achievements and ecstatic that your are not Annaliese Constable, in fact, you're not even related to her.
Jeeves Verma, a Sydney comedian, spent his childhood in libraries, secretly reading textbooks on anatomy. His father, forced him into comedy and was made to write 5 minute sets all weekend long: while the other good Indian boys out there were all having fun, in their rooms, studying Physiology; Jeeves was practicing punchlines in front of surly white people in a bar, somewhere. Jeeves, now having given up on the Medical dream, tells stories about his life to whomever will listen.
JEKYLL X JAMES is a musical comedy act with hip hop & rock 'n roll on the brain. Comprised of Sydney comedians, Jared Jekyll [RAW State Finalist 2013] & Cameron James [RAW National Runner Up 2012, ABC2] - JxJ bring live music and sketch together with off-the-wall spontenaity to create a comedy experience like no other.
