“Don’t Mess With The Dummies” is the latest comedic offering from the award-winning Dummies Corp! We loved “Splash Test Dummies” last year so we were very excited to visit the Famous Spiegeltent during 2019 Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
The show features an all-female circus troupe, where Ellen Henry, Maya Tregonning and Shona Conacher take centre stage with an endearing blend of circus, comedy and loveable antics.
As silly as they are strong, we were entertained as we were taken on a camping adventure with these three daring and dynamic Dummies!
The show is full of slapstick and physical comedy – it seems there is nothing as funny as a bum in the face, which had the young audience in fits of laughter! Admittedly, the adults were laughing too! Trust us, you haven’t seen anything until you have seen “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” sung by sleeping bags!
Don’t Mess With The Dummies runs for 60 minutes and is showing at the Famous Spiegeltent at the Arts Centre Melbourne until April 21.
Tickets are available at www.comedyfestival.com.au
If you think that the Melbourne International Comedy Festival is just for adults, then think again!
We saw the the Splash Test Dummies (Trash Test Dummies) and they were so funny and seriously talented!
The award-winning circus trio Jack Coleman, Jamie Bretman and Simon Wright are three lifeguards who will meet you out in the line and make sure you have sun protection before they set out to save you with their trademark blend of slapstick side-splitting circus, acrobatic, juggling, stunt work and imaginative comedy.
Young and old were laughing until our cheeks hurt, there are bucket loads of audience participation, songs like the Baywatch theme song, Octopus’s Garden, Rubber Ducky and I’m too Sexy, unicycles, shadow puppetry, ping pong balls and water! We promise that it’s family friendly and the kids will LOVE it!
We have a special code for you! When buying tickets, type in SPLASH for 2 for 1. Happy days!
