Preview of Yianni's 2009 Melbourne Comedy Festival Show "Comelody"
Have you ever wished that your life had a soundtrack? Yianni did. Imagine chatting someone up to “Foxy Lady”. Or scoring a goal to “Danger Zone” Then one day, it happened!
You should always be careful what you wish for however! Far from being the compliant backing band that Yianni had hoped for, his soundtrack talks back!
Now his constant companion, Yianni and his soundtrack tell stories from his life
1. foiling a mugging using only his wits (Public Enemy)
2. falling in love (Ben Lee)
3. losing her (Ben Folds)
4. crying in the arms of a stripper (The Cure)
5. having a stranger serenade a relationship breakup (Bob Marley) and
6. Yianni’s career as a priest in a small Cypriot village (you couldn’t pronounce it).
It's guaranteed you'll hear stories and songs that you love!
A cross between a movie, a cartoon and a stand up show, Comelody is an IMMERSIVE STORYTELLING EXPERIENCE.
From its wordless, Chaplinesque ragtime opening scene through to it’s gritty hip-hop inspired climax, COMELODY explores different ways of using sound and music to produce humour.
An eclectic music mix includes Bach, The Beatles, Beethoven, C&C Music Factory, Chicane, The Cure, Doves, Hendrix, Joplin, Marley, The Presets, Snoop Dogg, Sigur Ros and Sting plus many more.
It’s Comedy with melodies. It’s COMELODY.
There is a nominal door charge of £4 (£2.50 ticket price plus £1.50 obligatory Etcetera Theatre membership) to cover the cost of the theatre.
