There is not much to say about this original Aussie comedy performance other than it is gut-busting, laugh-out-loud, top-shelf Fringe entertainment.

I was not sure what to expect as we ventured to Tuxedo Cat to see the Aboriginal Comedy Allstars, but what transpired were the hilarious and contemporary observations of three very talented Aboriginal comedians on their life, frustrations and unique experiences of modern Australia.

The show kicked off with larger-than-life MC Kevin Kropinyeri – the funniest comedian I’ve seen. His use of facial expressions and body language alone are worth the price of the ticket. Forget all your politeness and political correctness, Kropinyeri destroys it with seat-squirming hilarity. There are plenty of OMG moments, especially for the “whitefellas” in the audience.

Just when you think you can’t take any more, Matt Ford enters the stage. Young, urban, laidback and self-depreciating, Ford meanders gently through dilemmas in his life before delivering the killer lines. A stylish performance that creeps up your funny bone.

To the delight of the audience, Kropinyeri keeps going in between acts and just gets better, the highlight being an impersonation of his three-year-old son doing a “guna”.

Andrew Saunders, star of ABC show WhiteBlackAtcha, finished the night with a smooth, quirky and very funny routine. This man has attitude and many voices, including some cool beat box. He debunks some of the misconceptions about Aboriginal people and culture with disarming wit and charm.

If you want to finish the Fringe with a bang, Aboriginal Comedy Allstars will leave you laughing until next year. A must-see.

The Aboriginal Comedy Allstars are performing at the Tuxedo Cat – Cusack Theatre until March 8.
