As the audience make their way to their seats, acclaimed London Based comedy duo, Jennifer Byrne and Vicky Falconer- Pritchard, clad in pink pinafores, are chatting to the crowd and encouraging them to sit at tables at the front and eat the popcorn on the table or throw it at them. Their ease with the crowd, hints at the audience participation that occurs later on and throughout the show.
Lascivious and cannibalistic bar owner Yeti, introduces us to a plethora of various entertainers; the conjoined monobrow twins, sleazy severed head Johnny who wows us with his card tricks, a lewd original song created in real time on stage with a sampler and The Psychedelic Nuns, a funk duo whose blasphemous songs strike a chord with the crowd. Yeti also accosts several unsuspecting audience members and performs some of the show in their laps, inciting belly laughs and nervous titters from the crowd.
Byrne and Falconer-Pritchard are seasoned performers, and their catchy songs replete with double entendres, are veritable highlights through out the show. Their exaggerated facial expressions and mannerisms are a hoot and generate much laughter.
Yeti’s Demon Dive Bar borders on the surreal and offbeat with clever dirty ditties interspersed throughout the show. For an hour of entertaining theatre and some absurdist humour pay Yeti’s Demon Dive Bar a visit, you may get your hair messed up too if you’re lucky!
