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.
Immerse yourself in the unconventional with a showcase of Melbourne’s fringe arts scene. Join us for a series of intimate performances from local icons and up-and-coming voices inside the Library’s exhibition, The Rest Is Up To You, celebrating 40 years of Melbourne Fringe. Presented by State Library Victoria, the Metro Tunnel Creative Program and Melbourne Fringe, these weekly shows push the boundaries of performance and explore new ideas. Book your seat now!
