The Delightful Sausage: Cold Hard Cache (The Delightful Sausage)

By | Published on Friday 18 August 2017

What is the internet? That’s the question posed and answered (sort of) by The Delightful Sausage – aka Chris Cantrill and Amy Gledhill – in an HR-style presentation throughout which one of them is dressed as a hot dog. As you might have guessed, the show is an utterly nonsensical tour of the web, from its history to its darkest corners. A series of vignettes and sketches anchored by a ridiculous PowerPoint, the show brims with ideas and creativity. Cantrill and Gledhill have excellent camaraderie, and although they’re both deadpan as anything, it’s an especial treat seeing one of them cause the other to crack. This is the duo’s first Fringe show, and it’s a belter. Keep an eye on them.

Just The Tonic at the Caves, until 27 Aug.
