Variety Gold! Step into The Famous Spiegeltent and be transported back to the golden age of variety television as Bob Downe and Adelaide's own Anne Willsy' Wills recreate Channel 9's Adelaide Tonight!
A sparkling hour of live, tea-time entertainment in living colour, featuring an ever-changing weekly line-up of fabulous artists. Great music, big laughs and cheeky cabaret are all on the bill, wrapped up in the Logie-winning glamour and hilarity that only Bob Downe and Willsy can provide.

Bob Downe, the comic creation of Mark Trevorrow, has been a beloved Adelaide regular since 1986. Winner of multiple Green Room cabaret awards, Bob is a television veteran, from Countdown and Mardi Gras to The Project and Studio 10.

Anne Wills, an Adelaide legend, is the winner of 19 Logie Awards - one more than Graham Kennedy! Willsy has been making us laugh with her sparkling wit and earrings since she first graced our screens in 1965.
