Once aptly described as something of a “fever dream”, Wheely Wheely Wheely Wheely Wheely is really a show like nothing else! An insanely unpredictable hour of unassuming comedy, it’s impossible not to get swept up in the delightful mayhem that Stephanie Laing and Paul Savage put on so naturally.
DIY theme music, a game show wheel filled with silly shenanigans, a few special guest appearances, and an above average amount of audience heckling – the show is an inexplicably delightful ‘shambles’. Definitely not a show for those who hate being involved or fun, prepare to get oddly competitive with people you’ve never met, for prizes you don’t understand, playing game show rounds you’ve never heard of.
Stephanie Laing and Paul Savage are charmingly awkward and make Crowded In The Vaults feel like an intimate gathering of friends where one of you has a batty idea for an evening of entertainment and everyone else gets swept along, laughing the whole way despite themselves.
The Wheely Wheely Wheely Wheely Wheely experience is hard to do justice to in words – part roast, part game show, part that year 7 drama class where they make you play bizarre games for no apparent reason. Prepare to bust up with laughter for the whole hour and leave beaming – a little bit of Wheely Wheely Wheely Wheely Wheely is good for the soul.
Grab your mates, skip this week’s trivia – go enjoy an hour of the silliest game show you’ll ever have the privilege of taking part in.
Wheely Wheely Wheely Wheely Wheely is on at Crowded In The Vaults: Vault 10 at 9:50pm until 21 April as part of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Tickets, show details and accessibility information can be found via the MICF website.
