ED2012 Comedy Review: Helsinki (Under Dogs)

ED2012 4/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

If you’re having a rough time, then taking a snoop at the Under Dogs might not be such a bad idea. Kate Roxburgh and Shae Kuehlman present something just plain silly and fun here, in their character comedy sketch show which includes murder mystery, lap dancing and a 1940’s war-torn love story. While the material on Midsomer Murders and World War II romances isn’t exactly cutting edge, there are some great moments to be found in their musical sketches. Their cover of the Goo Goo Dolls is hilarious, and snappy back and forth sketches stop the show from ever feeling tired or dull. It’s enough to leave you with your tail wagging.

Jekyll & Hyde, 3-26 (not 16, 23) Aug), 2.05pm.
