‘Everything’s so different!’ You might say, ‘There’s less gravity, there’s no water, there’s too many craters. How will we adapt?’ Well, fortunately, Seaton is already on the moon and he’s there to welcome you to the moon.
He’ll show you around your new home, give you tips and advice, share stories and tell jokes, he’ll sing you a song and make you feel at home, he’ll also warn you about the vicious child-eater that lives on the dark side of the moon, Der Lunerstod. There’ll also be dips!*
He’s there for advice, fun and frivolity, but mostly he’s there to say, “Welcome to the Moon!”
The Carnival of Regret: The Haunted Fairground
(Sydney Fringe Festival 2014, Sydney Comedy Festival 2015)
Seaton Kay-Smith has just inherited a fairground, the Carnival of Regret. It’s a carnival staffed by the dead, displaying freaks of various emotional defects and emblazoned upon its banner as you enter, the Carnival’s mascot, Benedict Teatowel, a soulless being made in the mud beneath the Circus tent, covered in teatowels and chained to the wall.
Fairground games and carnival rides await you as you enter those broken rusty gates, pay your 20 cents and lose your soul, if you had one to begin with all for a chance to see the Egotistical Lizard man taking a selfie in front of the mass graves.
A stand up comedy show set in a haunted fairground, you’ll laugh and you might feel self conscious doing so, but that’s okay, because everyone does. No one knows you don’t belong, but you.
This is the Carnival of Regret.

Throughout life, three questions plague mankind like no other. Three questions pry into the human condition and force mankind to seek out their answers, caus- ing sleepless nights and causeless sleeps. What are these questions? They’re not, “Did I turn the oven off?” They are, “Where did I come from?”, “Why am I here?” and “Where am I going?”
Seaton Kay-Smith seeks to plunge these depths with one liners, storybooks, poetry and song in his show, “Where? Why? Where?”
