A very wacky absurd show but so bloody funny, and includes audience participation too! Go see.

It’s hard to know what you are letting yourself in for when the performer describes himself as a ‘Professional Idiot’. Having seen the show I rather think Master of Silliness may be a better description.

Written and performed by Will Tredinnick, this show is utterly ludicrous but absolutely charming.

There isn’t a particular narrative flow, rather a series of increasingly bizarre set pieces which Will brings to life.

Will is all energetic enthusiasm and bonhomie with a highly individual style of manic dancing which he displays a few times through the performance. But he’s not in any way remote – he’s one of us, just a lot sillier. Even the way he recruits audience participation, as co-conspirators in his wacky adventures, draws us in to play with our mate, the class jester.

A certain Hollywood action blockbuster provides some focus for a few of his shenanigans, and he gently chastises us for not knowing the script and set pieces as well as a true fan should - but then he completely changes things anyway!

Once the crowd realised how engaging this guy is and caught on to the absurdity of what we were seeing, the space filled with laughter which continued throughout. There is a sort of frenetic yet whimsical feel to the whole show which, as the publicity suggests, could actually allow you to leave your troubles at the door.

The show is produced by Georgia Deguara of Yuck Circus fame, adding another impressive string to her bow.

I loved the sheer daftness of this show and it was lapped up by the early evening punters at The Hat Trick. As Monty Python’s famous ‘Idiot Song’ goes …”how sweet to be an idiot”. How sweet indeed.
