An Idiom’s Guide To The Galaxy (Captain Breadbeard Productions)

By | Published on Saturday 27 August 2022

A show that, well, does exactly what it says on the tin. Does that summary work? Maybe not. But among the mountain of idioms that Dave Watt and Pretty Good Nick slot into this fun show are a few that began life as advertising slogans. Some of the idioms are used to inspire sketches, others for quizzes that involve a little light but unforced audience participation, while others still provide the how-soon-will-you-see-it-coming punchlines for some mainly corny jokes. And then there are the segments where an idiom’s back story is explained, which personally I’d have liked more of. The delivery throughout was pretty cheesy, though knowingly so, and I felt suitably entertained by this guide to the galaxy of idioms. Actually, that’s what it should say on the tin.

C aquila, until 28 Aug.
