Journey through the weirdness and mushiness of our minds as this show takes a silly approach to exploring a range of absurdly odd characters.
Jeromaia Detto transforms into a range of hilariously silly characters throughout the show, the weirdness is what makes this show so hysterical as he works the crowd effortlessly and leaves everyone in stitches with his perfectly-timed jokes.
If you’re not comfortable with interactive shows then this one is not for you, Jeromaia’s characters often extend a hand to the audience which plays a big part in the funniness of this show, you never know what you’re going to get!
With a range of audience interactions involved, this show is squished and shaped into whatever it needs to be each night, changing to suit however the audience chooses to play.
His silly characters include a lonely beach boy looking for love in the crowd by handing out beach balls and making hilarious puns about crowd members’ names, professing his love for one giggling crowd member before getting distracted and moving on to the next.
This hour-long show is fast-paced and whimsy, by the time it got to an hour you’ll be wanting to see more.
Get ready to laugh like you never have before as Jeromaia invites crowd members to the stage to take part in a hilarious improv show, Jeromaia’s contagious personality will make you buckle over in laughter.
Jeromaia spent 2 years in France studying clown and theatre with a master of freedom and play, this has helped him to craft a show that is mostly improv and utterly hilarious every time.
If there is one performer that knows how to work the crowd perfectly, it is Jeromaia, he is able to get a shy audience member from not wanting to participate to up and interacting with ease through his charismatic and silly approach to comedy.
If you haven’t seen MUSH already, this silly and extremely playful show is definitely a must-see before the end of Fringe.
