The East London Guild Theatre and the GO! & Express is offering two sets of double tickets to Gino Fabbri’s upcoming comedy show ‘Fabbricated’, which will be playing at the Guild on November 6 and 7, starting at 7:30pm and 8pm respectively.
The highly anticipated show initially launched to much fanfare on March 13 and 14, before the lockdown was announced on the 15th and live performances were put on hold.
Fabbri, who moved his focus online in the interim producing 70 editions of his Facebook talk-comedy show Gino’s Spot, is itching to perform live again.
“Interacting with an unseen audience online and having to imagine their laughter has taught me new skills over this period”, says Fabbri, “but there is no substitute for the adrenaline rush of entertaining a live audience – and I miss that so much!!”
The Guild Theatre will limit capacity and take all the necessary Covid protection measures to keep audiences safe.
Fabbricated pokes fun at a society which apparently can no longer tell fact from varnished fiction as Fabbri introduces his audience to a fresh slew of fabricators who can’t seem to avoid stretching the truth to breaking point.
Tall stories, giant fibs, interactive songs, audiovisual hilarity, fast-paced one-liners, ingenious banter and a rocking new drum finale are just some of the surprises in store.
This outing is hosted by Justin Credible, a snake-oil salesman with a Baron Munchhausen-styled gift of the gab.
Audiences would also meet Lavender Du Santos’s Mafioso husband Manuel, hippie Lentil Visagie and the fabulous event co-ordinator Lejeandrevonne Rensburg, while Fabbri’s popular rule-bound cop, Helmut Rampspoed, adds another chapter to his diary of linguistic and traffic misfortunes.
Popular old man Jack, who featured in previous Ian Von Memerty collaborations, Common and Class and Unleashed, returns for some more disgruntled laughs.
Tickets are available through Computicket at R120.
