There is hilarity in the fact that this man clearly shouldn’t be placed anywhere near fire, or chemicals, and he knows it.
This time, that primary ingredient was Colgate toothpaste and a whole host of problems became a part of that process, including resistant matches, temperamental Bunsen burners and cracking petri dishes. The beauty of the show is that it is very difficult for him to script anything, because he is relying entirely on how the “ingredients” react with each other, spontaneously responding to both the audience and the frothing of toothpaste and tin (and that was just in our show). You cannot script this sort of comedy, which makes it inherently unpredictable, and that’s what makes Seaward a whole different comedy experience. There is hilarity in the fact that this man clearly shouldn’t be placed anywhere near fire, or chemicals, and he knows it. He even remarks that this is “the most ludicrous thing he has ever done” and it’s possible that this will be the most ludicrous thing you see, but the intimacy of the space the character that Seaward naturally possesses makes this a truly hilarious experience.
On the flip side, the first half is full of exposition to set up the rest of the show which leaves little room for spontaneity, which was resulted with a lack of laughs and a slowed pace that ultimately rendered the first part rather dull. But once things started kicking off, the room was brought to life and Seaward, fuelled by the responsiveness of his audience and volunteers led us through a performance that was quite utterly mad.
There is nothing else quite like it out there.
