A comedy space opera based on 90's action films
The Comedy Festival is shaping up to be another jam-packed month of comedy with 489 shows to choose from. There are your big name acts you could see but what you really want is to find that little show that both makes you sound like a comedy connoisseur and is actually worth the money you paid for your ticket.
As the name suggests this is narrative comedy and without giving too much away of the plot, when an intergalactic prisoner ship is boarded by terrorists to free their evil leader, it's up to two unlikely heroes to save the day. Anymore and I would spoil the fun.
The Consumption are an old hand at this and it shows with their tight delivery, witty jokes and well-structured plot that not only entertains but keeps you engaged through to its thrilling conclusion. It's worth going just for the costume changes - seriously.
There is no audience participation. If you're as terrified as I am to be pulled up from behind the fourth wall then relax, it's all about them.
Tickets are $12 for concessions or groups of more than five. Adults are $15. They're only performing nine shows from the 26th of March, be sure to check them out pronto.
If you like your space operas far out, anagrams that actually work, unflinching puns and comedy that is out this world ... then the Voyage of the Alan Rickman is that cost-effective little show you can brag about to your friends. Just leave your rationale at the door.
