Adelaide Fringe Review: Gordon Southern: On The Road Again – Howling Owl, 2023 

Renowned, veteran comedian Gordon Southern has brought an adventure-packed show to this year’s Adelaide Fringe Festival.

Following his journey over deserts and the seas, war and peaceful times, Gordon is crafty in his tales of adventures of a comedian travelling the world.

As a resident of Adelaide over COVID times, Gordon is able to connect with his audience with stories of familiar haunts before launching into anecdotes from life as a comedian experiencing the world.

With quick wit and light touch, Gordon continues to produce thoughtful and well-paced shows the likes of which you would pay to see in larger venues.

Through the audience’s laughter, Gordon is able to glide through political, environmental and societal issues leading the audience through heavy topics with comedic elegance.

This is a show for a broad audience, it is intelligent and delivered with joyous wit.

Gordon is a wonderful storyteller and comedian, I recommend this is not one to miss.
