WitTank

4 Stars

****

WitTank is a group of three guys who perform a bundle of rapid fire, well crafted, basically silly sketches. They have the stage presence and comic timing to make the content work as the laughs from a pretty packed audience just kept flowing.

The running order is cleverly constructed as the guys take centre stage either singly or in pairs or altogether. Thus, there is an unpredictability and plenty of variety to sustain the humour throughout. There are plenty of highlights to select. Being an outdoors person, I enjoyed the running gag of Lord Brinsley-Dresden, the buffoon explorer. Also, the notion of treating a Formula 1 Ferrari racing car as a beautiful female in a red dress to the soundtrack of Chris de Berg’s ‘Lady in Red’ is hilarious.

Highly entertaining from a team who are in top form and know how to put over surreal humour with conviction.
