Review by Emily Smith | 21 January 2022

I can't remember the last time I actually cried with laughter but there were at least three times during Impro Musical BangTown that I was wiping away tears. I could barely sip my drink because I was in hysterics, and I'm sure the cast were having as much fun as I was.

The BangTown team are comprised of five musical comedians and their three-piece band who provided on-the-spot musical numbers, atmosphere, and of course a well-time ba-DUM-tss.

The first half of the show is improv games, for example the Beasty Rap Competition. In this game the players take turns coming up with a few lines of rap on a theme chosen by the audience, and then are voted in or out by the audience until only the Beasty Rap Champion remains. Our rhyme-smith in a tasteful turtleneck earnt his title with his raps on the various colour schemes of native WA swans.

The second half is exactly what the flyer says, and what I was slightly sceptical about the possibility of: an improvised musical. Based entirely on crowd suggestions we had a musical with dodgy directors giving out drugs, a mugger who worked from a rickshaw, villainous video editors, and featuring musical numbers such as '(You Can Do Anything) On Coke,' all of which had me in stitches.

The songs were clearly legitimately improvised (no cheating here!) because they weren't the most cohesive or in time, but this added to the hilarity of the chaos as they side-eyed each other, judging who would take the next solo. The team followed invisible cues and built on each other's ideas to make musical magic out of a bunch of random words.

One hour was nowhere near long enough for this crazy comedy experience which everyone should see at least once.
