Human Fountains

By | Published on Sunday 28 August 2022

I hereby declare that spitting can be a talent. As I witness a second performance culminating in a standing ovation, it’s been made perfectly clear that this trio can truly carry a show and are not just a gimmicky one-trick troupe. It’s an hour of spitting madness blended with physical comedy, which is very much needed in order to maintain engagement with the rowdy audience, who respond with both laughter and occasional bafflement. When it comes to the spitting element, it’s confounding just how much material the trio come up with, as every scene was brilliantly done. Despite this, the physical comedy only somewhat landed, and the pacing needs work. But, love the idea or hate it, I reckon you’re going to laugh.

C aquila, until 28 Aug
