A Night of Wikipedilove

Comedy (music, true-life)

Add to favourites

Description

A unique musical comedy where Noam Osband and Bianca Jaconetty sing original music about sex and love based on Wikipedia. They perform alongside a projector displaying videos, academic studies, and of course, Wikipedia articles. David Attenborough meets Tim Minchin in this musical seminar about kinky whales, fascists and other deeply romantic topics. The show was written by Noam, a musical comedian who also has a PhD in anthropology and was a one-time Jeopardy champion. At last year's Fringe, reviewers called his songs 'really quite astonishing' (CinemaFringes.com) and 'laced with clever irony' (Jewish Chronicle).

Perfect late-night, Fringe silliness. A really fun way to end a day with a group of friends.

Saw this show on a whim with my boyfriend. We were both SO happy we went. Offbeat, funny, and surprising. Also, their voices sounded really good together. A good lighthearted way to end the day after seeing lots of shows.

Both artists had good singing voices, and Noam can play the guitar, but that is where the positives end.
Without giving spoilers away to the content of the show, only one person in the audience laughed (intermittently) throughout.
The audience started out around Twenty people strong, only Ten remained to the end.

Not recommended, If you're looking for musical comedy you should probably look elsewhere.

I saw this last year and really liked it. Happy I saw this new show this year. I dont know where they find these Wikipedia pages but they're amazing. I never thought I'd be singing along to a song about whales mating, but they had me hooked.

Wikipedilove is a late-night hidden gem at the Fringe. Noam and Bianca have written an amazing show (again) and it is well worth seeing!
