Künt and the Gang is undeniably shocking, offensive and infantile. However, no one would go to see ‘Künt’ unless they were already up for this kind of humour. If this is what you like, this show will have you in hysterics.

I found myself in an audience who were singing along to every song, attesting to the fact that his fans are loyal and love these songs. All the songs are unbelievably catchy, and it is frustrating to find yourself singing these distasteful lyrics for days to come. Songs such as ‘Bangers and Mash’ and ‘Wank Fantasy’, coupled with his distinctively bad dance moves are unforgettable and he manages to sing them in a delightfully cheery way whilst saying more than a few shocking things. Occasionally, he does go over the line - ‘Jimmy Saville and the Sexy Kids’ feels too much, but he always prefaces or ends each song with a small disclaimer, often seeming embarrassed at some of the things he’s sung. This makes him all the more likeable, and adds to his pleasant, bashful demeanour.

Some of the more shocking numbers, such as ‘Let’s Send Nan To Dignitas’ and ‘Wanking Over A Pornographic Polaroid of an Ex-Girlfriend Who Died’ prove that Künt can make catchy songs and rhymes out of song titles that seem more than a mouthful, but also that he can touch upon subjects which no one else would really want to. Despite the subject matter, you find yourself rooting for him all the way and even empathising with some of the worst parts. You may not want to, but it really is impossible not to laugh and sing throughout this outrageous set of songs. Just make sure that if you have a problem with calling him ‘Künt’ you don’t go see this show.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD

Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
