Cross Country Weirdos at Edinburgh Fringe ★★★★
A super fun global gameshow with cheeky comic hosts Robyn Perkins and Andrew Silverwood.
Robyn Perkins (Yank gone Brit) and Andrew Silverwood (Brit gone Aussie) serve campy dysfunctional Mel and Sue energy in this simple yet effective gameshow conceit discovering the weird things about our home countries. The format makes for an insanely fun and madcap hour, and the perfect remedy for too-serious comedy. TV executives listen up: this show needs to be made into a pilot!
Guest star contestant Alice Frick is hilarious, with a madcap exploration of her home country Austria in battle with flat cap cheeky comic Andrew Silverwood for the crown. Her delivery is quirky & fun, and riffs off Silverwood’s hard-done-by teenager sulks.
If you like the feels of Eurotrash, weird stuff and foods of the world, you’ll love this madcap, entertaining hour.
