The Wine Bluffs - Damian Callinan and Paul Calleja serve up a comedy wine masterclass at Adelaide Fringe
BY PBP | 17-Feb-2017
Ever wondered what wine goes best with Fairy Bread? Why the ‘Champagne Spider’ hasn’t caught on? These questions and many more will be inadequately answered by the self-styled sommeliers of comedy, Damian Callinan and Paul Calleja in The Wine Bluffs. @adelaide_fringe #ADLfringe
Following sold out Adelaide 2016 and Melbourne 2015 Fringe seasons, these well-cellared comedians return to Adelaide in 2017 doing what they do best - bullshitting about wine.
Laying spurious claim to a reputation as renowned wine consultants, the duo, fresh from judging the ‘Fruit Wine Section’ at ‘The Rockhampton Show,’ will take the audience through the cellar door experience with a comedic twist. They’ll help you match wine to Chiko Rolls, translate over-written bottle blurbs and identify the biggest Wine Wanker in the room. Note: if you have a wine fridge set on two temperatures... it’s probably you.
They’ll assist you in creating the illusion that you know what you are doing even if you don’t. They’ll have you swirling, gripping, inhaling and tasting, before moving onto the wines…
The union of Callinan (Melbourne Fringe Comedy winner and 3 time Barry Award Nominee) and Calleja (stand up and writer on Before The Game and countless other TV shows), has everyone’s palate salivating as they prepare to uncork their latest vintage and let the comedy breathe.
Additionally, The Stirling Fringe is presenting The Wine Bluffs on Wednesday 1 March @ 3pm and Saturday 4 March @ 4.30pm. Stirling Fringe also presents Damian Callinan in his multi-award winning The Lost WWI Diaries on Thursday 2 March @ 4.30pm and doing a solo late night stand-up gig on Friday 3 March @ 10.30pm. See www.stirlingfringe.com.au for more details.
The Wine Bluffs is proudly supported by Yalumba.
