Snotty school holiday fun

08 Sep 2016

Snotty school holiday fun Image

Southbank resident and entertainer Mark Trenwith will stage a local comedy show as part of the Melbourne Fringe Festival’s school holiday program in September.

The long-time stand up comic, who has performance experience in many children’s stage and TV shows, will perform his new show Mr Snot-Bottom’s Stinky Silly Show at Gasworks Park, Port Melbourne from September 4 to 20.

The Clarendon St resident described it as a fully charged stand up theatre show based on all things kids love: boogers, bottoms, pop-offs and smells!

However, he told Southbank Local News that there was just as much for parents to laugh at as there was for kids.

“I really wrote it for myself!” he said. “It’s all in the name of fun and many of the loudest laughs often come from parents.”  

“It’s always sad seeing kids in the front and parents at the back not interacting with each other. That doesn’t happen in my shows.”

“Nothing makes me happier than seeing a mum or dad and child laugh together and share the performance as a family.”

Mr Trenwith said the performance has something humourous for everyone, describing it as “a cross between Shrek and Mr Bean”.

He encouraged any Southbank families looking for something fun to do these school holidays to come along for a laugh.
