Most Australians wouldn’t know what a ‘Kagool’ is but British comedy duo, the Kagools, are certain you won’t forget what it is by the end of their show – Kula!
Heavily disguised in a ‘kagool’, the British form of our “hoodie”, Nicola Wilkinson and Claire Ford take to the stage in their latest version of madness and mayhem which combines live action and comedy.
Following on from the likes of Mabel Normand and Louise Fazenda who were two of the funniest ladies from the silent movie era, the Kagools take the idea of silent comedy to headier highest. But their new brand of wordless physical comedy isn’t about mere slapstick like Normand’s “pie in the face” scenes, their show takes the audience on a roller coaster ride of pure physical energy into the realm of on-stage anarchy.
What is the show about? Who knows! The show transcends age, gender, language and culture allowing the audience to figure it all out for themselves – and “be cool” in the process. Audience participation is “loudly” encouraged.
Highly acclaimed,this show is one to put on your ‘must see’list, so strap yourself in for the comedic ride of a lifetime when these two eccentric ladies who perform as the Kagools travel down under to bring their “anarchic antics” to the stage at the Butterfly Club.
