Fringe World’s Guide to Getting Out of Awkward Situations

Perth’s beloved Fringe World festival has a new CEO and a hot new line-up for the 2020 Festival. CEO Sharon Burgess was one of the key leaders of Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and Fringe World’s upcoming program which features slapstick comedy, underwater micro cabarets, jaw-dropping pyrotechnic stunts and more to intrigue the senses.

Cookie-cutter responses ain’t going to cut it. Here are some of our favourite responses by Singaporeans that have made the mark so far.
