Perth Fringe World | Cardinal Sins says
Comedian Frank Hampster was unfortunate to have gone to Catholic School in Ballarat, Victoria. Eleven of his teachers and priests have done jail time as a result of their ‘teaching style’.

Frank recently emerged from testifying at the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse. As you do, he proceeded to write a comedy show about it. After an acclaimed run at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Frank brings 'Cardinal Sins' to Perth for the first time. In it he tells some hilarious tales from the Commission and their attempt to force Cardinal George Pell back to Australia to face the music.

Frank will also reveal the ‘How and Why’ of the hideous cover-up that led to the Royal Commission through jokes and impressions of what it was like to grow up in Ballarat under the control of the world’s largest paedophile ring.

(There will be no mention of the obvious)
Find out what George knew.
Find out what George did.
Find out what happened next.

Frank Hampster is brave enough to answer these questions and more.

This show is for everyone, especially those that really want to laugh at growing up in the Catholic Church or for those that wish to make light of getting lifestyle advice from men that wear dresses and funny hats, live in cloisters and touch children.

★★★★ "As confronting as it is is equal parts informative, entertaining and revealing." Herald Sun

"Hampster has a strong awareness of the power of comedy, both as a tool for healing and a weapon for change...go to Cardinal Sins and listen to the conversation" Pop Culture-y
