The title suggests so much, but the show delivers so little yet Sean Cullen’s Erotic Laser Swordfight has to be one of the must sees of this Fringe. Fusing musical parodies with Cullen’s self-styled colourful ramblings, Laser Swordfight takes a sublime stroll through a surreal world of Sean Cullen.
With off the wall elements that would challenge Eddie Izzard for the surreal crown, this is possibly the funniest hour on the Fringe. The show doesn’t actually seem to have a theme or a discernible thread, but is hugely enjoyable and entertaining. It’s hard to tell how much of this show is ad-libbed, but there’s the suggestion that each night is different as his backing band roll around the stage, tears of laughter streaming down their cheeks.
It’s clear that Cullen is an amazing comic and that something as trivial as a plot would ruin his unchartable monologues. While lacking all the elements promised in the title, it is clear that Cullen is mighter than the sword.
