Acts have been going missing from the Gorbachev Circus of Wonder, and Jody Kamali wants to find out why. As he takes us on a mishap fuelled tour of the circus I try to understand his intentions in creating a deliberately “bad” show. The silliness is funny at times and I have to give him credit for working well with such a small audience, but unfortunately strength of character isn’t enough to carry this material. Even at the Fringe, watching someone throw plastic bags in the air isn’t going to be a side splitting five minutes, nor is being battered with a foam leg. Kamali’s charisma was funny for a short time, but after that we were simply left wondering when the actual show was going to start.

Underbelly Med Quad, until 31 Aug.
