“There are few shows as welcoming to parents and children as this fantastic COMEDY GALA for little and big people” ***** Entertainment Hive. **** Broadway Baby (UK). Free coffee from 10:30am!

What is it? (Comedy, Caberet, Puppets, Clowns etc): Variety show featuring the best acts on the Fringe hosted by Mickey D.

From the production team and Imagineers that brought you Phatcave, TittyBarHaHa and Bacchanalia. The Breakfast Club, hosted by Mickey D, features a changing lineup of the hottest acts on the Fringe and guarantees the best quality show that really is for all age groups. Since premiering in Adelaide last year the show has moved to Sydney, Edinburgh and Perth’s Fringe World.

Not just another kids show… The Breakfast Club offers a buggy park… bubble machines and chalk boards for little ones who want to take a break outside… early door openings so you can get settled without the rush… crayons and paper tablecloths.

A show built by parents, for parents.. Oh.. and kids 😉 Past acts include: Jimeoin, Claire Hooper, Abandoman, Morgan & West, Marcel LuCont, The Old Fella, Damian Callinan, Glenn Wool, Mr Snotbottom, Gordon Southern… and many more…

Why would you go? ( if you want to have a laugh with the kids; show them some culture; expand their horizons; show the kids you are cool etc) The talent is international. With 3 acts AND Mickey D there really is something for everyone in the family. Its a shared experience that you can all enjoy equally and talk about over dinner. Also great exposure to a variety of art forms. Non patronising and we book acts that the parents want to see anyway… but in a family friendly environment.

Who is it best for? Babies, Toddlers, 5-8yrs old, 8-12 years old, 12-15 years old, 15+, Mums, Dads, Grandparents. We welcome everyone! In Edinburgh the elderly couples/outings liked it because of it time and quality. Ideal age range is probably 4-12

How long is the show? Doors open half an hour before so families can arrive at their own steam, grab a free coffee, settle themselves. Show runs at 1 hour.

Where is the best place to park and how much? The convention centre I think is the best place to park for Nexus.

What can you do before or after the show? We open the doors half an hour early so you can have a free coffee/croissant… there is a chalk board… there are paper table cloths with crayons so you can draw on them. There is a bubble machine.

Is there food available or nearby? Nexus is at the top of Hindly street so it is a short walk from MacDonalds, theres a convenience store 2 minutes away and many other food outlets.

Have you done this before? Adelaide Fringe. Sydney International Comedy Festival. Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Perth Fringe World.

Key themes: Comedy. Magic. Circus.

Ticket prices: Family ticket (4 people) $56 standard $18 (inc fringe booking fee)  Buy Tickets
