Savage, slick and hilarious, Craig Quartermaine will perform at the LiveLighter Busselton Fringe on Friday, March 1 at the Esplanade Hotel.

The 2018 Triple J One Night Stand Up performer said the show was packed with irony playing on the obsession of people with becoming famous until the infamy takes over and “you lose control over how you are perceived.”

“It’s funny when you’ve worked towards something your whole life and then have that flipped on its head and people get upset about how they’re perceived if it’s different to what they think they are,” he said.

After being “sacked from (ABC TV show) Tonightly” the comedian and journalist is back with another lovingly barbed show packed with personal stories looking to change perceptions by offering an alternative view.

His shows may have struck a chord with comedy fans and horse-lovers around the world, but the now- infamous TV and radio star is trying to fight the stigma of “being a token Aboriginal”.

“If you think you’re going to learn something, you won’t, but you’ll have a damn good laugh,” Quartermaine said.

Quartermaine will perform tomorrow night at the LiveLighter Busselton Fringe comedy teaser at the Weld Theatre starting at 7.30pm.

Tickets are $10 at busseltonfringe.com.au/shop.
