“Witty and entertaining ****STARS”
By George Dixon
It’s Melbourne Comedy Festival time. This fantastic event brings out the best in comedy and some interesting “off the wall” productions. That One Time I Joined The Illuminati is undoubtedly one of this year’s gems.
Staged at another hidden, worth experiencing venue, Storyville, 185 Lonsdale Street, Melbourne (entrance Waratah Pl) This one-person show will have you captivated from start to finish.
I found Lou Wall (artist, composer, storyteller and presenter) to be engaging, relatable and very funny.
Her reflection covers five months of lockdown research and attempts to establish membership into the most secret and yet talked about organisations. “The Illuminati” becomes a treasure trove of events, which could only be true.
The audience was entertained by the use of “on-screen technology”, messenger/ text exchanges, and interactions presented in word, song and rap, with perfect pace and hilarious side comments.
Everyone was kept “on page.” As you journeyed with Wall down the various rabbit holes and struggle with the urge to subscribe and pay for information about the organisation of secrets, that is blamed for anything and everything.
What is true? What are the secret messages the conspiracists point to? Are they real, and do they hide in plain sight?
This one-hour performance exposes and highlights everything that Wall has found – Including codes to their official website.
A very entertaining performance that exposes its own secret message.
