You've simply got to see it.

This is the first recommendation I give to anyone just arriving at the Fringe.

Lachlan is a devilishly good ventriloquist, a fucking hilarious character actor, whip-smart writer, and world class clown. He claims his space in the Fringe eco-system with a show not only hilarious, but shamelessly and joyously queer in the second act.

He's selling out fast, and for good reason! Get there!

A very fun, very strange show. There were lots of laugh out loud moments, including some fun audience interactions. Would recommend

The gem of the festival for me. A late night show for an intimate audience in the Cellar at the Pleasance Courtyard, this puppet horror/comedy is brilliantly crafted and breathtakingly performed. Lachy is introduced as the shy queer impending virgin sacrifice of the muppet witch Brew, who invites the audience to take part in her satanic ritual to summon a demon. A first time Fringe performer, Lachlan Werner is one of the most multi-talented acts I've seen in a one-person show - an astonishing ventriloquist, he is also exceptional at improvisational comedy, clowning, acting and singing. Seek this show out! It's a demented little masterpiece. PS - a personal apology from me to Lacky for spraying you in the face with so much 'Sea Air'. The witch made me do it.

My go-to recommendation for this year -- this show is so weird and fun and queer, the absolute epitome of the fringe spirit. Really inventive and really funny, an absolute gem of a show and Lachlan Werner is a performer I can't wait to see again!

This is a good hearted show, from a talented performer who may well become a familiar, and sold-out face for years to come.

A terrifically talented young chap, Lachlan Werner might be the funniest new ventriloquist on the block since Nina Conti.

Deeply unexpected twists and turns ensure this show is a mad, barbaric and down right side-splitting romp - if I had time, I'd be going again.
