This show is what a comedy show should be. You’re sitting there when suddenly, the sketches are flying at you, fast and furious, the entire show whirring around you like a kaleidoscope, except the colours of the rainbow have been replaced by all the different kinds of comedy you know and love and you have no clue what’s coming next. Political, social and familial satire, slapstick, and self-deprecation as only the Irish can do it (they mention cows – and they’re off).
These are highly talented young performers delivering sometimes shockingly honest opinions of the obsessions of the moment. From reality TV to paedophilia, with lots of stops on the way, this series of bizarre meanderings is nothing short of comic genius.
The sheer lunacy of the H-BAM journey makes it impossible not to get involved, even if a part of you is slightly appalled that these guys can make anything funny.
The only disappointment on offer in this show is the fact that it ever has to end. Which means (dare I say it?) it’s a must-see for this year’s festival.
