Domestic Goddi Wonderland

****

4 Stars

I have seen the Domestic Goddi over the last two Fringes, originally Rosie Wilkinson and Helen O’Brien, Goddi II were Helen and Genevieve Swallow and for Goddi MkIII we have all three actors which certainly gives them scope for even more mayhem.

As in previous productions the sketches are well written and funny, if occasionally deliciously silly. I like the idea of running gags in sketch comedy, but to bring in this utilising some of last years characters and ideas and developing them is clever. However if you missed last years show they still work in isolation.

The sketches come thick and fast with very little lull between set-ups and I always feel it is when an hours show is winding up and one thinks it has been only going for a few minutes then it is a testament to the enjoyment factor.

Okay this is probably not a ground breaking performance, but it is a well- crafted, funny, enjoyable way to spend an hour in the Fringe afternoon.  I am looking forward to next year’s version already.
