#1 Ninja – MICF Review

Pitched as an affordable, unlicensed 55-minute seminar, channeling the likes of Tony Robbins, #1 Ninja is an hour of super-funny sketch comedy running as part of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

Starring Andy Balloch, Dan Pavatich and Ivy Latimer – a good-looking trio of fantastic chemistry, the show kicks off with the ‘seminar’s’ promotional video, passionate testimonials from the #1 Ninja’s success stories – and then the real performance begins as we’re taken through a bunch of revolving characters, sketches and alternate perceptions – poking fun at the absurd way that society treat those of different sexuality, gender…. and ninjas.

Basically, a glorious, cheeky middle finger to small-mindedness.

Without giving all of the good stuff away, if you like the sound of aliens with bizarre attractions to non-functioning bubble jet printers and awkward love stories from the Titanic, you should definitely get along and see this show, #1 Ninja is sketch comedy at it’s most fun.

Bring your mates and support local talent.

Rating: ★★★★
