The Rehearsal

After a third season in New York, and fresh from a tour of Holland, “Australia’s hottest export since Vegemite” (Time Out NY) return to the NZ Comedy Festival with their newest show.  So new, that it’s a rehearsal.  Or is it? “...two blokes acting the maggot and having a lot of fun in the process...wildly imaginative in conception and suitably breathless in execution...comedy gold” (Irish Independent)

Every Umbilical experience is like nothing you’ve seen before, and this acclaimed show is no exception. Visit Velcro World, see wind-tossing monkeys, relax with Shane, meet Dave's alter ego, and enjoy a finale that Chortle UK described as "one of the funniest things I have ever seen on a comedy stage".  You’ll even get to see what the Queen cacked herself over at the Royal Variety Performance.

 “Some of the most cleverly articulated comic theatre you’ll ever see...” (Sun Herald)

Creatively misused multi-media, audience participation, suspicious furry glove puppets, tangents that shouldn't be taken... In this, a very different Umbilical experience, they take you inside their Creative Process, and don't let you out until your brain explodes.

Come and join in on the process. After all, every Rehearsal gets you one step closer to perfection, regardless of what Chortle UK said (“There is no obvious way to improve on this truly, truly extraordinary show”).
