The Colour Ham (The Colour Ham)

By | Published on Tuesday 12 August 2014

What happens when you cross a stoic, disapproving mentalist with a costume-loving comedian and a magician mourning his pet rabbit? Chaos. Wonderful, hilarious chaos. The Colour Ham storm the Caves again this Fringe to bring us more ridiculous humour; and it’s even better than before. The amount of arsing around on stage is of course immense, but the laughter is always balanced with awe at what Colin McLeod, Kevin McMahon and Gavin Oattes can actually do when they settle down. Sleight of hand tricks and the art of deception are demonstrated perfectly, along with some of McLeod’s trademark, slightly scary, “I can read every person in the room” thing. They are legends, and this is an absolute belter of a show.

Just The Tonic at the Caves, until 23 Aug.
