Just The Tonic @ the Caves, 4 – 29 August 2010
Reviewed for The List (issue 665)
Imagine The Mighty Boosh without the mellowing constraints of consistent characterisation and mainstream success. Oyster Eyes’ sketches are a bewildering tissue of pop culture references, surreal concepts and non-sequiturs gummed together by dour, anti-comic disco DJ Alan Starr. While there are undoubtedly some unconventional ideas on display here, the show revels just that bit too much in its own oddness.
