Emerging star Kurt Sterling takes you on a journey from working class rural Australia to the top of the elite corporate world (and back...) Make no mistake, this show is taking the corporate world down.

Kurt Sterling is a Sydney-based stand-up comedian and 2024 Raw Comedy NSW state finalist. Fresh from a sold-out show at the Adelaide Fringe Festival, Kurt will be making his debut at the Edinburgh Fringe 2024 with his show ‘Corporate Chronicles’.

‘Corporate Chronicles’ is a sharply observed, hilariously relatable parody of office culture and corporate life. It exposes the dark underbelly of the white-collar world with tales of cubicles, caffeine, and collective discontent, promising you will never look at the office in quite the same way again!

Kurt says: "The quirks and challenges of office life are something that almost everyone can relate to. My show is a chance to get together for an hour and share how absurd the whole thing is! The awkwardness of human beings in suits pretending to be professional is universal and cuts across geography, culture and language. I’m incredibly excited to bring the show to Edinburgh Fringe”.

Kurt Sterling is also known for his online sketches, where his hot takes on news topics and his character comedy have racked up millions of views on Instagram and TikTok. He is also one half of “Tales of Colour”, a double-act show with Nqabutho ‘Naza’ Ncube, which tells the story of going from a working-class background in New South Wales to living in Saudi Arabia and starting a family in Morocco.

The show debuted in 2023 to a packed-out crowd at The Factory Theatre and sold out on opening night at the Sydney Fringe Festival.
