The Umbilical Brothers February 18, 2007

Posted by theoxymoron in Australia, Travel.

A few days ago I went to a comedy show at the Opera House. It was called “The Umbilical Brothers: The Rehearsal” and was really funny. Read what the Sunday Herald Sun wrote about them:

If you can see only one show during the comedy festival, make it The Rehearsal.

Prepare to succumb to the madness, mayhem, pure anarchy and genius that is the Umbilical Brothers.

Zany David Collins (the one with hair) and Shane Dundas (the other) take you on a laugh-till-your-jaw-aches adventure that has you pleading for more. Only minutes into the show, you know you are in for a real treat – a five star entertainment treat….Cleverly set up as though it is a rehearsal for the real show at the coveted Rod Laver Arena, the audience is treated to what appears to be an Umbilical Brothers brain-storming session. The results are hilarious. At times it is similar to watching a blooper show, the difference being that this one is funny.

This show proves yet again why the Umbilical Brothers are one of the hottest acts on the Australian comedy circuit.

Watch the following small clip from one of their most well-known performances!

Thanks for the clip, I like the fact that the background music is “Canon in D major” by Pachelbel, it even puts more emphasis on the comedic aspect , as the contrast between the sound and the way they act is quite different, as it is one of the most solemn pieces of music ever written..
