Following sold-out shows and rave reviews in 2013 and 2014, BottledSnail is back in the Melbourne International Comedy Festival with No Regerts: The 2015 Law Revue – featuring all new material and its trademark style of punchy and disarming sketch comedy. This year’s show is creative, clever, and delivers non-stop belly laughs.
Although the cast and crew consists entirely of lawyers and law students, there are no law in-jokes to be found. Instead, the audience is treated to an underwater murder mystery, a housemate from hell, and a bunch of amateur ballerinas bustin’ a move. You will see how one small break in your career can have devastating consequences, and leave the night wondering if Jeep sponsored the show. The cast are an incredibly impressive group, including some familiar MICF faces (such as former Barry nominee, Rick Gunn) and some incredible new talent (Brett Taback channeling the Phantom of the Opera is one of the best things you’ll ever see. Ever.) Over the course of an hour, the versatile cast provide a slick succession of original, sharp-witted and thought provoking sketches.
We have BottledSnail to thank for putting together this incredible hour of sketch comedy for the third time. BottledSnail Productions is a volunteer-run, not for profit organisation that creates and supports high quality theatrical projects for Melbourne’s legal industry. You can see No Regerts at The Quilt Room, Trades Hall, on 26, 27 and 28 March and 2, 3 and 4 April 2015. Tickets are $20 to $25 and can be purchased from Ticketmaster or via http://www.bottledsnail.com.
Prepare to laugh. This show is exceptional.
Part sketch, part musical comedy, 99 Schnitzels (Veal Ain’t One) is a one-man show bursting with vibrant and unforgettable characters. In the space of an hour, Joshua Glanc effortlessly transforms into a crossing guard, a gibberish speaking stand-up comic, and a South American pop star. His characters range from absurd to vulnerable and unpredictable, yet they are all consistently endearing. The result is a show bursting with music, silliness and moments of true pathos.
In his first solo MICF show, Joshua Glanc gives you everything you want – strange, superb, surreal and side-splittingly funny comedy. Glanc’s outrageous ideas coupled with his energetic performance creates a gem of a show that is truly unique to him and is not to be missed by you.
You can buy tickets to 99 Schnitzels through www.bottledsnail.com/portfolio/joshua-glanc/. The show runs from 25 March to 19 April and tickets are $15 to $20.
Hats off to you, Joshua Glanc. 99 Schnitzels is one hell of a show.
