Foil, Arms And Hog: Craicling (WhiteDucks and OTK)

By | Published on Thursday 23 August 2018

These boys sure know how to make an entrance. YouTube sensations, they’ve clearly thought hard about how to make their sketches work in a live environment. Kicking off with confetti cannons and an impromptu guided tour of the venue, they progress to such delights as a guide to childminding, a running gag about fast food delivery, and some songs – including an excellent Gregorian chant as monks gone wild. It’s apparent they are having as much fun as the audience, especially when they go off script and surprise each other with their improvisation. Admittedly, some of the sketches are stronger than others, but the overall hit rate is high, the ideas inventive and there is an unexpectedly satisfying conclusion. A triumph.

Underbelly Bristo Square, until 26 Aug.
