Sherilee Kahui

If you could invite anyone to your show (and you knew they would come), who would it be?
Dr Brown.

The Melbourne Fringe in three words.
Full, Sparkly, Boozy.

A favourite Melbourne Fringe memory.
Doing a drag show with Jake Preval and making an audience member vomit in 2011.

What is your experience as an independent artist being part of the Melbourne Fringe?
I have worked as a box office coordinator (2011) and directed and produced Minor Victories at the Owl & the Pussycat in 2012.

What makes the Melbourne Fringe unique?
I think the Fringe Hub functions really well, without being too over crowded.

Your advice for choosing what to see in the Melbourne Fringe.
Talk to people! Looking at the program; there are heaps of excellent comedy shows by women this year that I am looking forward to. I think the NZ contingent is all women!

Do you think there’s a better system than star ratings for reviews?
In terms of ratings? I don’t know. Reviews very rarely use the star system in NZ. I think as long as it is accompanied by a well written, critically engaged review (not a plot summary!) then it can be useful.

Five shows/events you will not miss at the 2017 Melbourne Fringe.
Fringe Wives Club: Glittery Clittery: a conSENSUAL party
Tessa Waters: Volcano
TRAPS. A romantic comedy for the modern sociopath by Amelia Evans
Power Ballad by Julia Croft and Nisha Madhan
KillJoy: Destroy the Fantasy
