The Disney Delusion (Leif Oleson-Cormack)

By | Published on Monday 21 August 2023

Leif Oleson-Cormack has a story that ought to be told. It’s rather a startling one, delivering multiple shocks along the way, as it reveals a narrative about holding onto hope of falling in love with your crush. As the comedian recounts the tale to the audience, it’s with such enthusiasm, you can’t fail to realise that he’s loving performing this, and the energy is infectious. The hour flew by quickly as the pace is fast and consistent, and the audience is very much along for the ride . This comedian is a great raconteur, and everyone in the room was undoubtedly intrigued by the story; however, while there certainly are funny moments, the show becomes more of a storytelling session and comedy slows down. It would still be a mistake, though, to not make time to see this compelling show.

Underbelly Bristo Square, until 28 Aug.
