Banana (Michael Galligan)

By | Published on Thursday 10 August 2023

‘Banana’ showcases the notion that even the smallest idea can ripen into something good. The focus is on a banana trapped inside a box, and chaos reigns for the hour-long performance. Expect to be surprised and engaged by the audience participation, which leads to unique moments that leave you curious about what’s coming up next. The show benefits from a large lively crowd but I’m pretty sure you are always guaranteed an enjoyable time. Michael Galligan proves that he is truly unafraid to go anywhere in his comedy, and also successfully delivers a narrative packed with facts about bananas. The timing of the jokes is perfect, making you laugh at the awkwardness and, of course, the punchlines – truly a funny chaotic banana filled time.

Zoo Southside, until 27 Aug.
