Babbling Comedy 2 (Perfordian Factory Korea)

By | Published on Tuesday 9 August 2011

Fat Korean men acting like children for laughs: what more could you want from a quirky show for the whole family? Not much, I assure you. With cartoon characters emblazoned on their clothes, the cast run around juggling, beat-boxing and doing whatever takes their fancy. With what is sometimes impressive skill, the audience is entertained by non-stop slapstick and the hilarious expressions of these Korean ‘kids’. Although the performance is, at times, incoherent, its eclecticism means the audience clap along to the simplest of activities, while the kids scream and laugh along with delight. Peculiar, hilarious, and performed with almost no English, you should think twice about skipping over this family show.

C, 3 – 28 Aug (not 16), 3.15pm (4.10pm), £5.50 – £11.50, fpp240.
