The Maybe Pile (Clark And Boothy / PBH’s Free Fringe)

By | Published on Friday 19 August 2011

“We don’t just break down the fourth wall – we attack it and eat a bite of it,” declares ‘The Maybe Pile’s’ flyer. As you can imagine, I was pretty darn excited to go and have my fourth wall bitten and eaten. However, whilst this set of comic sketches is competent enough, it lacked any real pizzazz and I struggled to equate their intrepid tagline with the performance in front of me. The concept itself – a look at the comedian’s struggle to generate new and exciting material – had potential, but this trio struggled to pull it off. Although these boys’ sheer dedication implored me to like the show, it would be against my better judgment. For now, it’s a definite no-go.
