Have you ever wanted to watch a comedy sketch that includes Eminem, Quentin Letts and Major Charles Ingram in one sketch? But not just that, watch an original rap performed by “Eminem” in relation to his fury at the cheating fiasco on Who Wants to be a Millionaire?
Look no further than a bill that includes Sheeps! This up-and-coming sketch comedy group, starring Liam Williams, Alastair Roberts and Daran Johnson performed new material at the Leicester Square Theatre and will be performing again on 7th November. Get ready to be taken on an “around the world trip” to both England and France…and then back to England, (and at one point in your journey you visit Hollywood) but mainly England and France. Each sketch is very well-acted with the ever-so-slightly eccentric ‘baaa’ of a sheep-sound effect to signal the next scene change.
Sheeps have a rather original approach to audience interaction, requesting audiences members to answer phrases such as “Don’t you like it?” with “Yeah…it’s all right” and whenever Sheeps begin to “lose confidence”, the audience shout “Keep going Sheeps!” The self-depricating nature of their material and their ability to step out of character (as part of the actual sketch) and ridicule the structure of the scene or the like, adds a rather charming and clever edge to their sketches.
The laughter in the audience was also the kind of laughter where you could just feel that everyone was enjoying it and engaging with their sketches.
Sheeps really are a very talented sketch-group with sharp, funny and original material. A really enjoyable performance!
