Tommy Green and some of his Upper Crass mates have reinvented themselves as Johnny Cobra’s Floating Roadshow, now on at 107 Projects in Redfern for the month of August. The Roadshow have left the improve at home this time and are trying their hand at a few updated origin stories (Adam & Eve, St Nicholas) and a few others that defy description. Ok, if I must: a cat with an attitude who continually thwarts his owner’s date, plus a cockney crime gang full of film buffs.

The scope is wide, the laughs are loud, the skits are short and the time goes by in a flash. The gang are much more polished than when I last saw them, and they are getting good crowds.

As always, silly, irreverent and oh, did I mention silly (but good silly)? Chairs provided. (Nice touch). A perfect way to spend a winter night instead of glued to the box.

The show is on again 23 and 30 August, for more information and tickets see: http://107.org.au/event/johnny-cobras-floating-roadshow/

Featuring: three angry white men (one’s got a tan), an entire woman, and even a chubby Asian who was brought out at vast expense from Meadowbank*.
