Found Objects Present Live Low Budget Comedy Adventures – Free (Found Objects / Laughing Horse Free Festival)

By | Published on Sunday 14 August 2011

If you think of ‘The Goodies’, but without the sophistication, you get somewhere close to the feel and content of ‘Found Objects’. The trio of Ben, Dom and Adam find objects and then use them to inspire adventures. That’s the theory, but what we get is a bunch of gags that would not look out of place in an episode of ‘The Chuckle Brothers’ mixed with some jokes about fisting. The adventures themselves are complicated, muddled and not remotely exciting. In short, the show is pretty awful, which is frustrating because they’re really likable guys with a lot of potential. With more rigorous writing, better quality control and a half-decent director they will certainly improve.

Laughing Horse @ The Newsroom, 4 – 28 Aug (not 14), 9.00pm (10.00pm), free, fpp77.
