Rhys Nicholson – Eurgh (Underbelly Productions in association with Century Entertainment)

By | Published on Friday 22 August 2014

For someone known for his razor-sharp, take no prisoners wit, Rhys Nicholson’s inspiringly named ‘Eurgh’ has a lot of heart (and a pleasantly surprising amount of inflatable llama). Nicholson is a very confident, flamboyant entertainer and, while he occasionally borders on the predictable or repetitive, his skills as a performer (as well as the guard llama versus sheep debate) soon overshadow these shortcomings. It seems strange that this show isn’t gathering a larger, more enthusiastic crowd because it certainly has an audience out there. Fans of the more graphic side of penis-related comedy, as well as those who like some theatrical flair with their laughs, will be right at home with Rhys Nicholson.

Underbelly Bristo Square, until 25 Aug.
