COMMON & CLASS
2 March 2019, Barnyard Theatre Emperors Palace
Laugh Yourself a Six Pack!
Two riotously hilarious and versatile performers in a laugh-a-minute clash of cultures.
The ultra-classy Ian von Memerty (Strictly Come Dancing, SA’s Got Talent and A Handful of Keys) reluctantly teams up with the unashamedly Philistinian Gino Fabbri (Gino Fabbri is Completely Nuts) for an outrageous musical comedy which will have you rolling on the floor and rocking in the aisles.
The uncommon combustible clash of breeding and culture pits drummer-comedian Fabbri’s dynamic drumming and guitar-playing against Von Memerty’s pyrotechnic piano-ism, resulting in a roller-coaster of musical contradictions.
Their mismatched machinations sees ‘the ‘battle of the twits’ moving effort-fully from Rock to Rocky Horror, Boeremusiek to Broadway and Country to Classical, even sharing a masterclass on how not to look sexy on the dance-floor along the way.
With Fabbri himself on drums and Von Memerty bringing down the house each night as the flamboyant Elton John, the pre-show backstage banter and one-upmanship, which ensued, paved the way for their natural collaboration.
When these two explosive talents combine, hilarity ensues and stomach-muscles are given a strenuous workout as two witty and beloved entertainers take merciless pot shots at each other in the guise of their alter egos. To quote one dazzled and delighted viewer “I laughed myself a six-pack”.
