Location Keith Murdoch Gallery
Swanston Street Welcome Zone

Scrolling through the time-suck of your TikTok feed, you’ve probably come across the phenomenon of #storytime: a person regaling their viewers with an anecdote as wacky and wondrous as it is revelatory and raucous.

This evening, veritable triple threat and babe Adolfo is bringing his own flair to a live, IRL version – a supercut showcase of spoken word, song, dance and delirium.

Covering everything from queerness to pop culture, culture clash to millennial mishaps, this is a wild, delicious ride of an evening that you and your friends won’t want to miss.
