Fringe Review: Camels @ Underbelly
Share This Article:
Following four sell out shows in London, budding creative duo, Patrick McPherson and Zac Peel, bring the tightly knit sketch show ‘Camels’ to Edinburgh’s Festival Fringe. A mish-mash of news reports can be heard around the tightly contained Friesian Theatre, as the temperature rises with anticipation, as well as the lack of air conditioning. McPherson and Peel stride onstage, clad in beige clothing, a nod to both the title and company branding: Beige Company Productions. The audio is drowned out as the duo turn down the metaphorical radio, announcing the start of “one-hour class of distraction”. What follows is a pleasant breath of fresh air from the chaotic political climate, as the pair seamlessly run through a series of well-crafted sketches. The show moves from the silliness of a behind the scenes call centre to the well-orchestrated satire of Judas seeking advice from his mother on the eve of Jesus’ Crucifixion.
