Arts Down Under 2020: Fat Kids Are Harder To Kidnap On Zoom by How Drama (Preview)
Missed How Drama’s Zoom edition of their signature Fat Kids Are Harder To Kidnap sketch marathon in June? Good news – they’re back this November, this time playing as part of the 2020 Melbourne Fringe Festival.
Performed live (no pre-recording!) on Zoom, Fat Kids Are Harder To Kidnap puts its actors to the ultimate race against the clock – to perform 15 playlets and sketches into just 30 minutes. Each one offering whip smart humour passing commentary and witty observations on current affairs, this particular edition is set to focus on issues arising in 2020, and how the pandemic has affected our lives, from working from home, to social distancing.
The best part? You get to decide the order. Every show will be a little different, as audiences vote for which of the 15 plays the cast will perform next, keeping everyone on their toes down to the last few nail-biting seconds to see if they make it.
Directed by Melissa Sim, co-written by both Sim and Jeremy Au Yong, and starring Ross Nasir, Pavan J Singh, Nicholas Bloodworth, Victoria Chen and Vester Ng, get ready for a truly unique piece of Zoom entertainment, enjoyable regardless of whether you’re watching from your kitchen, bedroom, or even bathroom, as this side-splitting performance returns to tickle your funny bone and put a smile on your face amidst the pandemic.
Fat Kids Are Harder To Kidnap On Zoom plays on 14th, 20th and 22nd November 2020. For more information and tickets, visit the Melbourne Fringe website here
