There ain’t no party like a Max & Ivan party, ‘cause a Max & Ivan party uses equations to guarantee participant enjoyment!
This show will have you crying with laughter, reliving your own youthful indiscretions and wanting to throw an impromptu stag.
The comedy duo are back at the Fringe and ready to throw the best stag the world has ever known. This is a story of friendship, bromance, and other words for platonic companionship—and it just so happens to be true. Using the kind of material your mother might show a potential prom date to embarrass you, the lads take us through a scrapbook of their most painfully awkward childhood memories to reach the inevitable stag conclusion.
With a show like this, timing is everything. Roughly 50% of the humour requires incredibly precise visual and audio cues, and the production team deserve a shout out for the flawless execution. Another special mention goes out to the parents of this motley troupe, for recording and safely storing every momento of their childhoods in the hopes that they might one day want to share it with their adoring public. We owe them a great deal.
Max takes on the role of straight man, with Ivan as his ridiculous but lovable accomplice. Their chosen roles are perfectly suited to the performance—Max steering the narration while Ivan interjects with inexplicable insights into his unique worldview. Learn about Ivanglish™, listen to some real teen band recordings, and watch the most committed facebusking performance of all time. Along the way we learn that throwing the perfect party requires advanced mathematical formulas, complicated email chains and a regular review of the weather forecast.
Max & Ivan: Commitment is an epic tale of brotherhood—a bond stronger than any marriage vow. In fact, we can’t help but wonder how Ivan’s new wife can compete with the most beautiful bromance of all time. This show will have you crying with laughter, reliving your own youthful indiscretions and wanting to throw an impromptu stag, regardless of gender or marital status.
