Raj House, Thu 27 Oct.
The Comedy Mass Debate tonight was a scrumptious taste test of the Feast Festival’s hilarious comedy line-up and one that will have audiences coming back for seconds and thirds this weekend. Hosted by the Adelaide loveable larrikin Lori Bell and her eroding chin, the big debate of the night was being Single vs Relationships in the LGBTIQ world.
Arguing that being single is better than being in a relationship tonight was Toby Halligan, Thomas Jaspers and Daisy Berry who spoke about the choice and convenience of being single. Halligan kicked off the argument with style only to have Thomas Jaspers after him bringing the filthier, more provocative argument to the debate. Jaspers began highlighting the evil couples throughout time and the single people who achieved great things as they were not held back by a relationship. Even though he received a minimal amount of texts to his mobile following advertising a good time, the huge laughs from the packed crowd hopefully gave him the love he needed for the night. Jaspers was a clear stand-out of the night with great hysterical bitchy critiques and creating really awkward moments for the opposing team. Pocket rocket Daisy Berry rounded off the singles argument highlighting how convenient and cheap it is being single when you live off mie goreng and baked beans.
Preferring relationships to being single in the debate tonight was Andy Balloch and Marcus Willis of The Sparrow Men, Victoria Healy and Lisa-Skye. Bulloch and Willis demonstrated their mastery of improvised theatre showing us how peeling bananas, making toast and having sex is so much better when done with a partner. Make sure you check these hilarious guys out as part of the Feast Festival. Victoria Healy followed showing off her awkward stair walk and how creepy a wink can get when trying to pick up. Lisa-Skye drummed home that it is not a relationship with one person that is better than being single, but that a polyamorous lifestyle with lots of relationships is better.
The singles won the debate tonight with Toby Halligan’s plea that they made a better argument with the harder topic winning the crowd over. The Feast Festival has an awesome line-up of comedy this weekend so make sure you head down to Hyde Street to check them out.
