A Taste Of Planet Caramel (Planet Caramel / PBH’s Free Fringe)
By Daisy Malt | Published on Wednesday 24 August 2016
Through quick-fire sketch comedy, this trio is rather good at delivering weird little snippets of fun. With a few simple props and plenty of energy, they draw you into their strange world. There are glimmers of comedy genius, particularly in a skit about weight-conscious whales and in a brilliantly dark song from a bin with an inventive new method of recycling. With no sketch lasting longer than 90 seconds, the ones that don’t work so well are quickly forgotten – some are just downright baffling. Reminiscent of the surrealist trio Clever Peter, Planet Caramel definitely show promise. Oh, and if you need more persuading, you’ll get a Tunnock’s Caramel Wafer just for being there.
Opium, until 27 Aug.
