ED2012 Comedy Review: Jollyboat (PBH’s Free Fringe)

ED2012 5/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

“Big on the pirate comedy scene”, ‘Jollyboat’ is an hour of musical comedy delights. The Jollyboat brothers are a talented pairing, keeping the audience amused with sibling banter between laugh-out-loud funny, and borderline offensive, songs. From a medley of pirate pop to a song about religious masturbation, expect awful puns, hilarious gags and note-perfect musical parodies. A few jokes sail close to the wind, but the brothers keep everything just on the funny side of the line. This is a slick show for the Free Fringe – even if the props do self-destruct – and it won’t be long before the Jollyboat boys are boarding the fame galleon and plundering richly deserved booty.

The Voodoo Rooms, 4-25 Aug, 12.30pm.
