The Living Room

Melbourne Town Hall - Lunch Room

Winner Best Comedy 2019 Melbourne Fringe 

These Accountants of Death work tirelessly to record the death toll. Confined to The Living Room, the occupational hazards wear on these two clowns as they learn the meaning of life and death. An absurd and physical jaunt brimming with audience interaction, existential phone calls, impaired dancing and the love of a goldfish. 

This show rides the very fine line between comedy and tragedy. Employing audience interaction, physical comedy and absurdist theatre techniques, this show leaves the audience laughing and crying, and thrust out into the night to ponder it all.

'A surreal, clowning, macabre wonder.' The ARTery

'They address the big feels with a touch that’s deft and gentle, even when it’s delivered with exaggerated physical comedy, Punjabi nursery rhymes and vodka. ★★★★' Time Out Melbourne

'This Beckettian sequence of bits is exactly the kind of thing people should be making room for at the Fringe. ★★★★' The Skinny (UK)

'Hilarity and poignancy merge. ★★★★' The List (UK)

'A prime example of the epitome of fringe shows. ★★★★' The Wee Review (UK)

'Arrestingly unpredictable and entirely sure of itself. ★★★★' Theatre Bubble (UK)

'I’m not sure anything can prepare you for the full-on attack that is [this] American double act. ★★★★' Everything Theatre (UK)

'In the best spirit of modern clowning, clever physical comedy abounds, and the absurdity fairly ricochets off the wall, along with the spillage... impeccable timing and control... brilliantly set up gags take us into unexpected territory. ★★★★' Theatre People
