As a seasoned Kmart lover myself, any Fringe show about Kmart has me immediately hooked! Jason Pestell is the budget-savvy genius who hit headlines nationwide last year after he spent a whole 24 hours inside a Kmart store (minus three minute toilet breaks of course). Jason’s new show ‘Kmart’s the Greatest Shop Man’ was at The Laugh Resort and was pretty packed for a 6pm show, admittedly with a slightly more mature crowd than I.
Jason, who is the man behind the @kmartlad Instagram featuring Kmart’s latest bargains, took us through the fame and fortune he found by spending a day at WA’s own 24 hour store (yes – we have a 24 hour store!), and how he made his way onto a primetime morning TV segment. Accompanied by his trusty powerpoint show, Jason had the crowd giggling along at his biggest accomplishment, anecdotes on his day job/s and some handy tips on how to fool your way into VIP events and other people’s UberEats orders – with the help of Kmart products.
Whilst ‘Kmart’s the Greatest Shop Man’ didn’t have me in stitches, I walked in and out of the show with a smile on my face (and a FREE homemade Kmart lanyard – cheers Jase!). If Kmart’s your heaven, I would definitely give this one a try as an easy to watch, wholesome – for the most part – Fringe show.
