A new eccentric comedy from Muzzle The Pig opened at The Etcetera Theatre on the 26th June to critical acclaim.
Remote Goat – 4 Stars
The jokes come from both circumstance and word play and make me wish I was more familiar with Muzzle The Pig’s other, more conventionally comedic work as it is genuinely laugh out loud funny in more than a few places.
Of the three “helpers” it is Looks, played by Luke Kaile, who perhaps deserves to be spun off into a play of his own. A washed up actor who “once did a commercial” is perhaps the most complete of characters here and also the most convincingly played. This is very much an ensemble piece however and it is praise that the ensemble must get for making this the entertaining evening that it is.
