Aaaand Now For Something Completely Improvised
February 28 2016
Racing Minds is their name and racing minds is certainly what they have. Hailing from the UK, this is a group of comedians with quick-wit, off-beat banter, a great sense of fun and a refreshingly unique show.
From the moment the doors open, the cast bravely place the fate of the show in the hands of the audience, allowing them to name the main character and unveil hiss/her hidden secret, the key location and the title of the story. Without preparation or a script, the cast immediately launch into an hour-long skit of unpredictable, unconventional and undeniably clever humour.
Sometimes chaotic, mostly ridiculous and always hilarious, this is quite literally a one-of-a-kind comedy show. Every performance is different and is entirely dependent on the creativity and imagination of those in attendance. An impromptu rock ballad titled ‘The Angry Pelican’, a ship cabin boy with a knack for sculpture marooned on an island in the middle of the ocean (which one, who knows…!) and topical humour aplenty all featured in ‘The Tragedy of Democracy’ on the evening we attended.
The chemistry between the actors is evident throughout the improvised show as they seamlessly bounce off one another’s jokes, occasionally shooting comical side remarks to the “author” and audience.
If you’re up for an amusing and unique evening, definitely head along to the adorably quirky and eclectic back garden of the Producers Hotel on Grenfall Street, settle into a worn, squishy armchair (if you’re quick enough to nab one) and prepare yourself for a comedy show filled with incredible sharp-wit and candid humour.
Shows are continuing until March 13 and as a side note, Racing Minds also have a show (Aaaand Now for… Kiddo Kaos) playing on weekends for, you guessed it, the kids. Get your tickets to either show from www.adelaidefringe.com.au/fringetix.
An unpredictable and unscripted comedy journey that will have you in stitches
