Bad Bread 2012 – Survival Guide (Bad Bread)
By Nathaniel Meyers | Published on Tuesday 14 August 2012
This is a delightfully creative show, with a variety of sketches that could only have been imagined by the quirky trio behind it. By dramatising mundane events and characterising inanimate objects, they find the non-obvious comic potential in dog walks, Teletubbies and even Monopoly. The sketches were imaginatively performed too – in spite of the patchy accents – and linked neatly through the apparently impending apocalypse, fuelling the endless energy on-stage. The show does try to be a bit too clever in parts, venturing a Holocaust gag and even a Maddy McCann joke that crowd members visibly disapproved of, but the strength of this show lies in creative, surreal and truly random sketches, for which it is absolutely brilliant.
