The Dog-Eared Collective: You’re Better Than This
Constantly creative, this show is technically highly proficient, weaving madcap characters with hysterical props, excellent soundtrack and audience interaction. One favourite has to be a pitch black St Johns Ambulance sketch involving a resuscitation doll hostage scenario and the live recreation of a 13-year-old's street dance movie – in 3D!
Made up of one guy and three girls, they work as a tight unit embracing the audience as a fifth member of this quirky and dysfunctional family. Hilariously dark in a totally original way and haemorrhage-inducingly funny I can’t recommend this group highly enough. If you like sketch comedy or even if you don’t – you can’t get better than this!
