Aunty Donna (Electric Talent)

Aunty Donna

Aunty Donna really know how to put on a show. This sketch comedy is noisy, sweaty and hyper, with added bath caps. The Australian trio rap their way through the hour with barely a second of peace – even the ten second “interval” is far from serene. I get the feeling this comedy is love or hate; some of their sketches will leave you aching with laughter, but the constant noise becomes a bit much at times, when the show descends beyond their trademark chaos into unbridled carnage. Revisiting several earlier gags in a sketch towards the end was a particular success though, demonstrating just how much material these guys have. A fun hour, but definitely not for everyone.
