The Kagools: The Kagools

The Kagools continue to deliver childish fun for all ages despite not uttering a single word in their playful and energetic physical comedy. This duo take you back to the era of Mr Bean. They have the ability to masterfully tell a story through over animated facial expressions; a technique which is both mesmerising and entertaining.

Their unique skill of being able to make small moments, such as eating a mars bar, into something side-splittingly hilarious turns this show into comedy gold.

The use of pre-recorded interactive media in the show is pure genius. By combining visual effects with live action they create something both clever and entertaining. However, what truly steals the show is the duo’s double act. By bouncing of one another they make the other funnier and more ridiculous to the delight of the audience. Their friendly competition as they attempt to outdo one another, encouraging the audience to pick sides, is thoroughly engaging. This and their unique skill of being able to make small moments, such as eating a mars bar, into something side-splittingly hilarious turns this show into comedy gold.

Their use of audience participation also added a lively dimension. This was certainly unusual, getting them to pose for a picture; dress up as a bear or even stealing shoes! The humour is well judged and adults and children watching the show are certain to be delighted.

It would have been better to have them develop individual personalities as they kept changing their characteristics in different sketches. However, this is a small quibble in what is otherwise a highly entertaining 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.
