Marny Godden – Flap ‘Em On The Gate (Marny Godden)

By | Published on Friday 21 August 2015

Marny Godden

In her solo show, Marny Godden (one third of sketch group the Grandees) introduces us to six highly individual, highly weird characters. Featuring such eccentric personalities as Mick, a kipper-loving wheeler-dealer; Josie with her cat Drusilla and Little Wula, a hirsute 15-year-old boy, Godden’s style is hilarious nonsense, reminiscent of ‘The Mighty Boosh’. She quickly won the audience over with her quirky charm, embracing the shouts of a keen young boy in the front row – he soon became as much of a personality as one of her characters. Most of all, Godden clearly has a lot of fun playing each of her unpredictable personae, drawing the audience into her funny, peculiar world.

Underbelly, until 30 Aug.
