Nath Valvo - Not In This House. **** Stars.
Valvo is a skilled entertainer and writer with his comedy. The show has been well developed and squeezes a heap of laughter for a wide audience into an hour long show.
The House With No Name. **** Stars.
Delightfully outrageous. The shows launches into being deliberately and gloriously kitsch. Puns are thickly loaded into the script, as were some comical musical numbers that vary from cringe inducing yet hilarious to strongly performed ballads.
Tommy Little & Gossling - Heartbreak & Hilarity. **** Stars.
It is an interesting format with a lot of opportunity for mixing together different styles of performance into single production. Both Little and Gossling are excellent performers in their individual fields and their on stage chemistry was comfortable and familiar.
Hans, Willsy, and Bob Downe: Triple Treat. ***1/2 Stars.
Triple Treat is a multi-generational show with the different styles of performance and humour strung together in a very entertaining production. There were short story based jokes, dirty songs, and karaoke moments that seemed to appeal to the broad audience in the Corona Theatre.
Nigella - Love Bites. *** Stars.
The cabaret production starts off with fun, original songs that base from the presentation of recipes in a cooking show. Isbester is at home on stage with the small on set mock kitchen and the lighting to alternate between the scenes that snap her back to the required persona for television.
Alex Williamson - Make The World A Banter Place. Stars.
The usual blending of storytelling and overall production development can allow for dark and extreme humour to be part of a well-executed show in which any topic, no matter how provacotive, controversial, or outright crude, can undergo comedic treatment. I didn’t witness any of that in this show.
