Fylm School (Show And Tell and Simon Munnery)

By | Published on Thursday 7 August 2014

Simon Munnery is not known for doing the most conventional of shows, and ‘Fylm School’ is no exception. With the performers at the back of the auditorium, the audience stares at a screen, where Munnery and his guests (Josie Long, Alex Horne and Rob Auton) are projected. We’re treated to silly songs, mime, stories and jokes, all interspersed with photos, hand-made props and drawings of varying quality. There’s no theme, just an overall sense of fun and silliness. The camera is not always reliable and, in the hands of anyone else, this could feel amateurish, but thankfully Munnery is a pro. Surreal, whimsical and always inexplicably hilarious, this innovative show proves that there’s more to comedy than one man and a microphone.
