Giddy, imaginative, surprisingly touching sketch comedy
Cheeky Moon are renowned for their safe, sensible, milquetoast comedy, as well as their inaccurate, weirdly self-destructive opening lines in their show listings.
“Velveteen Sheen” presents the very best bits from their sold-out stage performances of 2017 and 2018, lovingly re-parcelled into an hour of spectacular sketchery.
You’ll see Thomas the Tank Engine confront the void of his own existence, scientists challenge the temporal physics of the Vengabus – plus death-defying juggling, slam-poet plumbers, spinach explosions, and the kaleidoscopic neon tendrils of the Aurora Borealis!
In the tradition of Mr. Show and Micallef Tonight, Velveteen Sheen plays to the nostalgic, extravagant, overwrought, absurdist literarian in us all.
Be wiled. Be guiled, alternatively, to your preference.
Think of the last time you laughed really hard. It will be similar to that.
Like “Cluedo on a boat”, except with sketches on a stage.
We just might be Daft Punk, so come and find out.
