Carnivale Club success
Turned inside out by the Moscow Circus
CARNIVALE Club will definitely be back at the Sugar Wharf in 2013 as sell-out crowds, talented comedians, artists and cabaret performers combined with fashion and great wine to make it the hub of festival entertainment.
Carnivale kicked off with a gallery opening and wine-tasting night which saw over 400 people walk through the door and enjoy the surroundings of the Sugar Wharf overlooking the Dickson’s inlet.
Battle of the Sports and Neptune’s Realm put on great shows and sell-out performances included the burlesque cabaret Heavenly Bodies, the fashionably stunning 5senses and the RAW comedy night.
Good News Week’s Mikey Robbins and Bev Killick from Puppetry of the Penis and Busting Out had big shoes to fill after comedian Fiona O’Loughlin called in sick, but the crowd was not disappointed with hysterical laughter filling the iconic Sugar Wharf. IGNITE your imagination by visiting the extraordinary Great Moscow Circus which arrives in Cairns next week.
Michael Edgley’s Great Moscow Circus Tour emphasises the brilliance of the Russian circus, with an explosive array of acts featuring extraordinary skills and ability.
Besides a stunning visual array of high tech lighting and elaborate costumes, the program is set to thrill and amuse, from fun-filled clowns to elegant mastery performed by 20 superb acts from Russia and around the world, including the daredevil human cannonball.
The Great Moscow Circus will be held in Cairns from June 6-17. Book now by calling 0429 667 269 or Ticketek on 132 849 or online at www.ticketek.com.au or www.moscowcircus.com.au
Over 240 people squeezed into the Sugar Wharf to hear comedians describe why fairytales are wrong, how conventional ovens are miracle-workers and why sing-a-longs can be fun.
Carnivale Club coordinator Claire Tierney said the comedy club launched Sit Down Comedy in the Far North last year and was a brilliant way to finish the Carnivale Club.
“Many of our locals are from bigger cities and towns and have chosen to come and live somewhere remote and quiet but still want access to these amazing artists - it was well supported ,” she said.
“I couldn’t be happier with what we achieved in our first full program, we had amazing crazy things go on behind scenes but every event came out really well.
“Port Douglas should be proud this venue showcased talent in this town so well and Carnivale Club will be back.”
Plenty of support: Carnivale Club proved popular this year
