Former teen father turned inadequate handy man, Fabien Clark, left his dead-end job and entered a world of school runs and playgroup mums; where his wife is the breadwinner and he bakes cakes.

Enter the world of the desperate househusband.

What is it? Stand-up Comedy Show

Why would you go? Mums and Dads would go to this show to be in a room full of adults having a laugh at their kid’s expense.

Who is it best for? This show is not for kids! It’s for the people responsible for them so this is a must for Mums and Dads.

If they like Everybody loves Raymond they will like this.

How long is the show? 50 mins

Where is the best place to park and how much? There is free parking on site in the Maid Hotel carpark.

What can you do before or after the show? Make it a proper grown ups night and have a drink at the Hotel before or after (or both!)

Is there food available or nearby? Dinner is available at the Maid – pre booking recommended.

Have you done this before? Fabien will be performing in his 5th solo Adelaide Fringe Show.
