The two entertainers are performing at 2018 Adelaide Fringe and will help promote Australia’s largest arts festival to national and international audiences.
After growing up in Australia, Act now lives in Los Angeles and has spent the last few years touring around the world in the wake of making the top three on US reality TV show RuPaul’s Drag Race. She will perform 'Under the Covers' for two nights-only on the Fringe’s opening weekend.
She said, “Adelaide Fringe has such a diverse and engaging line-up of artistic talent and I’m always honoured to be part of that – especially with Joel. We’re like the Scott and Charlene of Adelaide Fringe... I hope he’s happy to get a perm!
Creasey will be add Fringe Ambassador to a long list of achievements – from releasing his first memoir, Thirsty, to commentary duties at Eurovision and being named GQ Comedian of the Year.
He’ll bring his new show Blonde Bombshell to the Garden of Unearthly Delights from March 5-11 in which he slices and dices celebrities, pop culture and even himself.
“I’ve been performing at Adelaide Fringe since 2013 and it’s always a thrill because the audiences are so willing to take risks and give off such a great energy. Plus the opportunity to work with fellow blonde queen Courtney is a treat. It’s going to be the naughtiest Fringe ever!”
Adelaide Fringe Director and CEO Heather Croall said securing Act and Creasey as Ambassadors was a major coup for next year’s Fringe. Ms Croall said to keep growing audiences, the Adelaide Fringe needed to attract more interstate and overseas visitors.
