Found Objects

Lion Theatre

Until March 11.

4 Stars.  “Definitely take the plunge- endearingly funny.”

Found Objects are the unrivalled exponents of wet comedy and in their latest show, Plunge, these three stooges remind us what it’s like to be nerds at the beach. What’s more, they sing-  “My Grandmother is a Fuddy Duddy” and  their  dolphin tribute “We Are the Hippies of the Sea” accompanied on guitar , trombone and  pan pipes.

They are also big on props- foam bike helmets, novelty sandcastles, metal detectors and other triumphs of stage illusion. In the tradition of Funny Stories and Tick Where Applicable, this group traffic in dingbat gags and shaggy routines . Clever, modest  and endearingly funny – Found Objects are worth discovering.
