No two shows are the same
If you haven't been to an improvised comedy show before, this is perhaps the most brilliant place to start.
Following success in 2015 and 2016, Racing Minds (Daniel Nils Roberts, Tom Skelton, Chris Turner, Dougie Walker and Dylan Townley) are back performing at their third Perth Fringeworld.
It's a pared-back set with the guys, their mics and a bit of music. But over 50 minutes they perform a series of short, high-energy scenes, taking ideas from the audience and turning them into clever, silly, surprising and downright hilarious tales!
While they have a knack for gathering audience input, where they take that input is entirely surprising. It's not a stretch to say these guys are geniuses, and you get the impression they could improvise their way out of any situation.
At times I felt like I enjoyed it way too much for a kids show. I've also found myself recalling scenes and having a quiet chuckle to myself, and searching for more of their shows to go and see (they have a few at Fringeworld). You know what? It wouldn't be a stretch to catch the same show either, after all, every performance is unique.
If you're looking for some good fun with the kids Aaaand Now For…Kiddo Kaos! is a great show to see. Performing in the Lunar Big Top in Pleasure Garden, remaining dates are February 12, 18, 19 at 4:30pm. Tickets can be purchased online or at the box office.
