Egg – Static (Egg)
By Patricia-Ann Young | Published on Wednesday 17 August 2016
Making a show feel organic and spontaneous, while maintaining a sense of coherence and structure, is not easy to do, but comedy duo Egg make it look easy. Emily Lloyd-Saini and Anna Leong Brophy have a rat-a-tat rapport that’s zippy and infectiously fun, immediately endearing themselves to the audience. Throughout the sketches they weave an ongoing storyline that pays off really nicely in the finale, showing not just effective comedy chops but an eye for storytelling that elevates this hour above your average sketch show. The sketches are topical but not preachy or tired, in fact, the whole show feels very off-kilter and completely fresh. An egg-citing hour of comedy that promises even greater things to come.
Laughing Horse @ Southside Social, until 23 Aug.
