ED2012 Comedy Review: Cheese-Badger Presents…Midge (A Two-Man Musical) (Cheese-Badger / Free Festival)

ED2012 5/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

This show is an absolute gem, and that’s especially satisfying when you consider that it’s from one of the free strands. Brilliantly fantastical, with a surreal storyline, this tale follows the life of Midge, who is sent to live with his mad uncle Clive when his parents are killed in a car crash. The two man musical brims with almost ridiculous levels of intelligence and creativity, and the comic overacting lends itself well to the style of the show as well as to the hilarious, well-integrated songs. If you crossed Flight of the Conchords with a Tim Burton-esque plot, then you might have a shadow of an idea about the quality of this production; an absolute must-see.

Laughing Horse @ The News Room, 2-26 Aug (not 6, 13, 20), 12.00pm.
