If I had to describe Charisa Bossinakis's show Paquito in one word it would be - 'the best bang for my buck '. Well, there is more than a word there, and that's exactly how 'Paquito' is. It simply cannot be contained in one feeling and you leave with a good rush of endorphins. Ah, not to mention the puns!
Paquito is a great narration of some life events of Ms Bossinakis' life. A key one being travelling to Cuba. The unique selling point of this show is how Ms Bossinaki weaves her short scripts to tell us her bigger story.
She starts off with her tale on school excursions and how eventful they were and gradually ends with one about Paco's dance studio in Cuba. She could pinpoint the absurdity of every situation with a snappy wisecrack.
Her content is clearly drawn from real-life situations and delivered with such whimsical expressions. Geez! The Spanish intoned phrases and gesticulation, shrug of her shoulders and eyebrow raise were all smack on. Her natural and vivacious style sets expectations for a relaxed light evening of pleasant laughs, but she expertly stupefies you with all kinds of humour, including cheeky irreverence and moments of giggly laughter. Some of her one-liners are epic.
At 22, this lady clearly makes an impression. She is here to stay at the comedy scenes, Melbourne and I more than willing to place my bet on her.
