Sam Goodburn: Dumbstruck (Underbelly and Sam Goodburn)

By | Published on Wednesday 9 August 2017

It’s the morning after the night before, and Sam clearly had a good night. Now he’s fumbling around Susan’s flat, attempting to make her breakfast, but he’s finding both the toaster and the bowl of cereal rather more challenging than the rest of us might. He’s also got to juggle phone calls from her mother and his best friend Brian – quite literally. Goodburn has some great tricks up his sleeve, although he seems endearingly inept at some; the trouble is, it can be difficult to tell whether this is part of the act, or whether it’s actually not quite going to plan. Fortunately he nailed his ambitious finale. If slapstick is your thing, ‘Dumbstruck’ will hit the mark.

Underbelly Cowgate, until 27 Aug.
