Live Bait (LetLuce)

By | Published on Wednesday 7 August 2013

Whilst the comedy created here is inclined towards the sillier side of things, that isn’t to say it’s not clever. Many sketches are rather juvenile, but all were performed with an enthusiasm that made  proceedings very enjoyable. Several of the characters, notably the wedding dressmakers and a social outcast named Judith, were portrayed with lavish amounts of surrealism that proved extremely popular. Other efforts fell a little flat but the deliberately kitsch nature of the show managed to mask the slightly poorer antics. If all sketches can be brought up to scratch, expect to see this comic pairing on a bigger stage sometime soon.

Laughing Horse @ The Free Sisters, until 25 Aug (not 12, 13), 4.30pm.
