With four comics each evening selected from venues all around Fringe World, from the oldest comic to the youngest, we have something for everyone - whether you enjoy whizzing messages across the internet, or you are more comfortable with snail mail - our line-up covers the laughter found in both the joys and hatred of modern life and the complexities of being on planet Earth in 2017. It's the perfect way to start your Fringe night out.

ALL-STAR INTERNATIONAL COMEDY SHOWCASE
Who, what, where, when? There's so much to choose from at Fringe World!
And if you can’t decide which international comedians to see at this year's Fringe, then this is the show for you!
Every year it seems that there are more and more international comedians of varying styles, descriptions and abilities landing on Australian soil to entertain you. And they all look and sound so good.
So, after sell-out runs in 2014, 2015 & 2016 at the Adelaide Fringe, and a sell-out Fringe World run in 2016, the All-Star Intentional showcase returns to Perth's Fringe World for a second year!
The show is packed full of laughs from a selection of the Fringe’s hottest International comedians, all crammed into one show: four of the finest festival comics for the price of one.
You can see the best of English, Irish, Scottish, American, Canadian and Kiwi acts - plus many more depending on the night. There’s truly something for everyone, and it’s different every night.
This is absolutely the best way to see a choice selection of this year’s international visitors.
The show is hosted by the internationally-touring comedian Nik Coppin, who adds to the international flavour, being from the UK... and also Barbados.

BATTLE OF THE SUPERHEROES - THE GREAT SUPERHERO DEBATE
Following its huge success at Fringe World in 2015 & 2016, many comedians converge once more in Perth to find out who is the greatest superhero of them all. With a mixture of stand-up comedy and interactive debate, this is a fun show that can be enjoyed by geeks and non-geeks in equal measure.
With the huge success of the Avengers movies, making A-listers of Captain America and Iron Man, Spider-Man coming home to Marvel, Deadpool cutting and cursing his way into the spotlight and of course the divided opinion about Batman v Superman and other DC movies, superheroes have never been so talked about.
But who is the best?
Be part of this interactive, fun (but deadly serious!) comedy debate as a compere, adjudicator and four of the best comedians from around the Fringe converge in a verbal war of words in an endeavour to find out who is the greatest of them all.
★★★★ "This is such a fun and entertaining night where heckling is mildly encouraged, there are games in between rounds and prizes to be won. Even if you know nothing about superheroes, as I did, it is immensely funny to watch people pull “facts” out of their behind and make them sound possibly factual. A Super fun night!" (The Clothesline, Adelaide Fringe)
"This was a fun chance to discuss and laugh about what are often very ridiculous characters" (Rip It Up, Adelaide Fringe)

BEST OF INTERNATIONAL COMEDY... COMES TO FREO
Why travel into Perth, when you can see the very best International comedians from across Fringe World in Freo?

With a different selection of comedians from Fringe World venues at every show, this really is the very best way to catch some of this year's top comedy visitors to Western Australia, without having to catch the train.

And at each show the comics are introduced by popular UK comedian Nik Coppin, known to Perth Audiences as the host of the 'Best of UK' show and 'Shaggers', which were both sell-out shows in Fremantle in 2016.

★★★★★ "Could [Show Host] Nik Coppin be any more spectacular? Fast paced, witty, fun and amazing, all without any pretension. The guy you want to be seen at, seen with." (Melbourne Comedy Festival)
★★★★ "Charmingly hilarious host Nik Coppin's comedy was effortless; engaging the audience’s attention with almost no effort at all" (Rip It Up, Adelaide Fringe)
