Cabaret And Comedy at The Cheeky Sparrow

If you are keen to get your Comedy, Cabaret and Opera fix this Fringe Festival, The Cheeky Sparrow is a one-stop-shop for all three!

Nestled in Wolf Lane, The Cheeky Sparrow is a hip coffee joint during the day, but when the sun starts to set, it is a hive of Fringe activity with a range of cool shows to see.


Be part of the show with the highly interactive Up Late & Uncut where the performance takes part on the stage, and on your table! Get up close and personal with performers and tip them with some Darling Dollars.

Bet you’ve never seen this before – a funeral-themed cabaret! Go on a songful journey with funeral singer Phoebe with Phoebe’s Fond Farewells: Everything You Wanted to Know About Funeral Songs But Were Afraid To Ask!


Strap in for an absurd multimedia pelt through the history of everything, as Daniel Nils Roberts: The History Of The World In 1 Hour crams the entirety of recorded time into just one show.

If you are stuck for which comedians to see at Fringe, this triple bill rotating line-up should help! You never know who will be on as part of the Triple Cream Comedy Showcase. One thing you will know, is that you will laugh!


If you are an opera newcomer, this bite-sized serve could be the perfect introduction. Catch the Australian premiere of the 30-minute chamber opera Savitri, which is an immersive experience that blends mythos and innovation.
