zazU (zazU comedy)

By | Published on Sunday 31 August 2014

A portal opens and, by way of following a bee, we are transported into the relatively niche sector of the ‘parallel universe sketch show’. As you might guess, this takes us into the realm of a surreal, quirky cast of recurring characters and unfolding scenarios, a world where the singing of vocals is banned and younger siblings of the same gender are ‘spares’. Being a sketch show, it’s bound to be a bit hit and miss, but assorted foolishness about TV cops, PR branding, pen pals, shopping and sex (sort of) is energetically realised by a keen and talented cast. And, since it’s award season, a belated nomination to the zazU crew for best use of biscuit props. Good, silly fun.

Underbelly Cowgate, until 24 Aug.
