Princes of Main - Cool Ed2016

I know that BBC Three now exists online, but I think I found some remnants of it nestled in a little dark box in a corner of the Underbelly Med Quad. Billed as a TED talk on how to be cool, sketch trio Princes of Main serve up snippets of humour that will certainly appeal to the 18-24 age bracket. Their greatest sketches are the shorter, pithier ones, including a conversation conducted as if scripted via Google Translate, and there’s an excellent use of an e-cigarette to create atmosphere in another. I was utterly confused by some sketches, but I can’t decide whether it was just the weirdness itself that was meant to be funny. Maybe I’m just not cool enough yet.

Underbelly Med Quad, until 29 Aug.
