ED2012 Comedy Review: Sexytime! (Tessa Waters and Kai Smythe)

ED2012 5/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

Sex has never been so hilarious. A physical comedy that involves sketches of interpretive dance, ‘Sexytime!’ will have you stunned into hysterics. Man and Woman take the audience on a journey from Adam and Eve and the sexual revolution to the all-familiar one night stand. Full bodily commitment (that never stopped being outrageous) from both actors resulted in unforgettable facial expressions and a comfortable atmosphere from the beginning. The exaggeration and tomfoolery generated roars of side-aching laughter, but the distinctiveness of this show lies in its perceptiveness and honesty. I sat with my mouth wide open the whole performance; partly in wonder, mostly in anticipation of whatever would come next. A must-see.
