After chatting with the pair in the lead up to the festival (read it here), it was a surprise that there was less content about mispronunciations than expected, especially with ATB joining the gang for the night! Each performance of ‘Mispronounced’ features a different MC, with an experienced local comedian helping guide the night and bring loads of laughs.
ATB offered something different to the night, both in style and comedic focus. With a laid back approach, he touched on lighter and darker notes, which included the use of eerily perfected sound effects.
Onto the main event, Raewyn and Urvi each took a portion of the time to regale the audience with stories of family and workplace shenanigans as well as the occasional bit of observational humour. In their maiden MICF effort, the pair did well to put on a genuine and sincere show that felt quite personal at times. That said, their relative inexperience performing a MICF show was evident at times in both nervous laughter and their narrative speed.
While the talent felt raw, there are gems in this show. Raewyn covered material that felt original and performed it in a non-confrontational and relatable fashion. Urvi had strong confidence in her set and brought waves of laughter with some personal, and all too real anecdotes of family. These elements were made all the more amusing with friends and family in the audience.
‘Mispronounced’ is a solid maiden MICF show and highlights the talents of two up-and-coming local comedians.
Check out ‘Mispronounced’ from 3 to 8 April at Tasma Terrace. For more information and to book tickets, click here.
