OLIVER SUDDEN Announced at Melbourne International Comedy Festival
The one true Oliver will melt into a popsicle puddle and startle an intrepid swan baby.
With his unique brand of sketch, character, mime, and PVA glue, Oliver Cowen will show his proverbial comedic undercarriage, to hopefully find some semblance of fun in a post-breakfast world. Failing that, an eXpresso martini and a large-ish bean bag.
Be prepared to find a jubilant boy looking to the comedy gods and asking 'how about them apples?'
This sweet, strange boy has the general air of someone who knows what he's doing but paired with the general anxiety of someone who has too many very specific props, and is incredibly bad at making puns but relentlessly persists anyway. It's hard to look away as this hairy, bulbous boy throws his sweaty bod at mime walls.
Oliver Sudden is a varied collection of absurd sketches, ranging from clowning to mime to slapstick comedy. Following the footsteps of Aunty Donna, Tom Walker, and Demi Lardner,
Oliver Sudden incorporates high-octane character work, physicality and occasional dance numbers, with an assortment of eccentric props and costumes, alongside pre-recorded voice overs, sound effects, and recorded music.
