Describe your show in a tweet? Get on board The Luv Boat for romance, rubber chickens, pirates, gastro, the buffet and Kiwi karaoke with Captain Obvious and his intrepid crew!

What was the inspiration behind your show? Everyone has gone cruise mad in recent years so I decided to take our Fringe crowd on board for riotous romance on the SS Unthinkable, where there's a storm in every port and everyone gets a lei!

Tell us a bit about the creative team working on this project? I have been writing, producing and directing four-person Fringe comedies at Maxim's Wine Bar at Norwood since 1998. And the cast of Kim York, Marc Clement and Stefanie Rossi have had plenty of input, with great props from Jo Herring!

What do you love about Fringe and why? It's the time when Adelaide let's it's hair down and people go out for fun and to try something different. They are willing to give new shows a go and I give them a new show every year about Adelaideans.

When and where is your Fringe show? The Luv Boat kicks off at Maxim's Wine Bar on 9 Feb with our $15 preview, then we run Wednesdays to Sundays (no Saturdays) until 13 Mar at 7.30pm.
