The Beta Males In… Superopolis (Ditto Productions)

By | Published on Thursday 15 August 2013

With more onomatopoeia than you can shake a gauntleted fist at, farcical comedy troupe The Beta Males bring you a sketch show about everything super powered. Exploring the whys, what ifs and ironies of the superhero world, this play has enough niche references for even the most seasoned fan  (I’m talking ‘Ocarina Of Time’ songs niche). Not that civilians should be discouraged: this is a smart, brilliantly self-aware comedy performed with infectious fun and enthusiasm. It’s clear The Beta Males have an honest love for the genre (except maybe one) and it shines through in their sharp observations and knowing winks. Whether you share their love or not, there’s tonnes to enjoy in this gleeful jaunt of justice.

Pleasance Dome, until 26 Aug (not 13), 7.00pm.
