Cracks In The Garden

Jo Randerson and Gentiane Lupi are two very brave comedians who find material in places most would be afraid to look. Yet, their delivery is inoffensive even if the gags may cross a politically correct line.

During their comedy sketch show, Cracks In The Garden, we see the relationship between the two girls disintegrate. Of course, this is all part of the act and is used as a device to hang a series of absurd situations. They are not scared of an awkward pause, and indeed use it as part of the comedy.

Their material ranges from Soap Opera to the Klu Klux Klan, and many bizarre tangents in between. The only thing that let these talented girls down on the night I saw them was the audience. Their show really demands more than half-a-dozen people in, otherwise the awkward becomes embarrassing.
