Buskers? previews a taste of fun to come
CHILDREN along the Coffs Coast will all be asking the same question this week ? 'Can we go and see the buskers festival'?
The Coffs Harbour International Comedy and Buskers Festival schools program was launched at Corindi, Woolgoolga and Sandy Beach yesterday with students getting their first taste of busker mania.
Today, busker Izzi Tooinsky visits Coramba and Nana Glen, before finishing the week off at Lowanna, Glenreagh, Bishop Druitt College, Sawtell and Urunga.
Promoter John Logan said the schools' program was a great way to give children a preview to the festival.
The shows this week are for schoolchildren only, with the real buskers event hitting Coffs' streets from Friday.
Now in its fifth year, this festival is the biggest street theatre on the NSW coast. It will bring 20 of the best street performers and comedians from around the world and Australia to provide hilarious, top-quality entertainment for locals and visitors.
This year's line-up includes the Japanese duo of Gamarjobat whose performances can only be described as outrageous, side-splitting comedy.
Also coming is Thorn Sellectomy from the USA and a sword-swallowing freak.
The festival starts on Friday and finishes on October 1.
