Muriel: Bad Master (Muriel in association with Dawn Sedgwick Management)

By | Published on Wednesday 9 August 2017

Muriel are known for their online videos, and in their debut show the trio have put together a mix of live sketches and short videos, mainly parodying YouTube videos, vlogs and family FaceTime calls. These on-screen sketches are a nice way to introduce the performers and their characters into the live show. Highlights include the rapper trying to come to terms with being dumped by her boyfriend and the women at a protest march, but a sketch about an adaptation of ‘Angels in America’ lost some of the audience. Great acting and a lack of weak sketches make this an enjoyable hour, but it never quite reaches the levels of their online videos.

Underbelly Cowgate, until 27 Aug.
