It is Crowded in the Vaults to see a Ferocious show
Down by the riverside near Fed Square is full of life on a mild night at 6pm. A strip of bars roar with hot food and cool spritz. If you need some comedy to help your drink go down, Melbourne International Comedy Festival has set up a cosy venue here. The line-up of acts is rich with colourful titles - one of which jumps out wildly, Aurelia St Clair and Rhi Down's Ferocious.
The chairs were cosily filled with interest and the lively crowd was quickly chortling. It was actually the beauty I saw in Aurelia's name that attracted my interest to this show. Aurelia is well matched with it. As she is caught between cultures. She has a unique perspective on life and a distinctly interesting identity. Both Aurelia and Rhi tackle this issue of modern identity head-on.
Politically correct humour for Millennials - both Aurelia and Rhi's shows have a cutting rim. The loud crowd really seemed to enjoy the performance. Aurelia's quiet and relaxed manner juxtaposes with her friend's loud and open energy. Their words spark and crackle. This is biting comedy for those who like a laugh with a punch. The comediennes' words hit the audience with intense ferocity.
