ED2012 Comedy Review: George Ryegold’s God-In-A-Bag (George Ryegold)

ED2012 4/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

If you have ever pondered the theological and scientific significance of Battenberg and metal tea-pots, then this is the show for you. The story follows George as he proves himself incompetent at friendships, romance and professionalism, culminating in his heavily ironic proof of the existence of God; an illogically logical argument worthy to counter Douglas Adams’s Babelfish. This show may not have you rolling in the aisles, and it somewhat lacks drive, but huge amounts of enjoyment are derived from the clever writing, sustaining a general atmosphere of good-humour. Furthermore, each actor in this is superb, creating fleshed-out and realistic characters whilst retaining their comic value. Perhaps not a divine revelation, but certainly a pleasurable experience.

Underbelly Bristo Square, 1-26 Aug (not 13), 1.45pm.
tw rating 4/5 | [Jessamine McHugh]
