Gobsmacked (Underbelly Productions, Nic Doodson, Andrew Kay, Phil Bathols, TCB Group)

During last year’s Fringe, Gobsmacked firmly established themselves as the a-cappella act to beat. This year they look set to retain that crown, presenting top-notch vocals alongside the work of world champion beat-boxer Ball-Zee to create a top class, well rounded show. While other a-cappella sets can feel stale, trudging from one song to the next with no innovation, Gobsmacked never fall into that trap. Short skits utilising the incredible talents of Ball-Zee link each piece, helping the show to become a slick, choreographed and almost theatrical hour. Everything is planned and executed perfectly – right down to creative use of live looping techniques. Undeniably, this show is a huge success.
Underbelly George Square, until 29 Aug.
