The Dog-Eared Collective – You’re Better Than This (Dog-Eared Collective)

By | Published on Friday 19 August 2011

Flitting from one sketch to another with lightning speed and delivering abstract, off-the-wall but hilarious performances, this troupe leave you feeling like you’ve stepped out of a comedy whirlwind. A myriad of costumes, props, wigs and accents flit by as these four incredibly talented comedians create ‘Snooker: The Musical’, an Italian version of ‘Top Gear’, and a short film about street dance with help from the audience. The scope of their material is diverse and consistently funny, while the inventiveness of their many backgrounds and guises is to be marvelled at. The show is occasionally too fast-paced to quite keep up, but as you are speedily transported to the next scene, it’s impossible to dwell on this minor grievance.

Underbelly, 4 – 28 Aug (not 17), 4.00pm (5.00pm), £8.00 (£10.00), fpp67.
