Seaton Kay-Smith’s ‘The Carnival of Regret: The haunted fairground’ is landing eerily at the Container Factory in Marrickvile, as part of the 11th Annual Sydney Comedy Festival. Showcasing a rising entertainer with a distinctive comedic voice and intriguing conceptuality, this hour-long stand-up show touches on many underlaying topics that plague human existence as a whole. “The idea of the carnival of regret is fundamentally that the real freak show is what’s going on inside you. In terms of your angst, anguish, and self doubt. It’s funny because it’s a universal emotion, everyone has issues about who they are, and it’s funny to explore that aspect,” says Seaton Kay-Smith
This fairground is full of Seaton’s established, quirky, quick one-liners, music and visual comedy. Having packed out the Sydney Comedy Festival last year, and his book ‘A fistful of Clones’ published successfully this year, Seaton is working hard to entertain audiences that relate to his gripping sense of humour. He is sure to bring the audience laughter amongst interesting and odd characters and this carnival is one you wont regret.
May 13 & 15, $10-18, 105 Victoria Road, Marrickville, The Container, Factory Theatre, sydneycomedyfest.com.au
