Business Casual: Feral (Stamptown)

By | Published on Thursday 18 August 2022

Physical comedy perfection. ‘Feral’ is the perfect title for this high-octane performance that becomes wilder as things progress. It’s a show that features only sketches that descend into mayhem, but there’s nevertheless plenty of variety and some call-back gags, which means it all works cohesively. The concept of these sketches are innovative and there are plenty of really creative jokes that made me yearn for more. With dance numbers, sound gags and plenty more besides, many sketches make good use of physical comedy, showcasing the troupe’s particular skill in this area. That said, the spoken comedy, by comparison, was a bit more hit-or-miss. But still, this trio really knows how to entertain a crowd with some wonderfully mad ideas.

Gilded Balloon Patter Hoose, until 28 Aug.
