Greedy

There's some material in Greedy which really is on the furthest reaches of comedy. Subjects like paedophilia, incest and physical disabilities all come into the cross hairs of this highly talented team. It's dangerous, and they're balancing on a far limb, but they have the ability to present this tricky material in such a way that diffuses its controversial power.

The audience in the house tonight seem reluctant to play along. Perhaps they are nervous about laughing at some of the material. But in between the risky stuff, there are also great gems worth of oft-repeated TV specials. The concert drummer, T Rex and 80s vs 90s dance-off to name a few.

The four players, James Wren, Felicity Wren, Rachel Eagen and Louie Bayliss, each bring brilliant individual characterisations to the show, and together they are pushing that boundary of comedy just a little bit further.
