Direct from the neon bright lights of Las Vegas, The Miss Behave Gameshow is a perfect blend of cacophonous chaos and hilarious hysterics that leaves you gloriously giddy.
Miss Behave, her assistant Tiffany and guest star The Evil Hate Monkey, on a stage surrounded by cardboard social commentary signs, guide the audience – who have been divided into two teams based on their mobile phone – through a series of fast-paced interactive games and challenges, where cheating is encouraged and greediness is either rewarded or punished.
A fully charged mobile phone, pop culture knowledge and a willingness to cheer and jeer at the top of your lungs will add to your enjoyment of the night, but if you’d prefer to sit back and enjoy the rambocus mayhem unfolding in front of you, then you will still have a great time.
Miss Behave is a cabaret superstar, having starred in La Clique and La Soirée and was a Guiness world record holder for sword swallowing. She commands the stage with an equal mix of authority, whimsy, control and a willingness to go wherever the audience takes her.
Tiffany, an aerial hoop expert who has the most incredible collection of symmetrical tattoos, partners with Miss Behave perfectly but nearly steals the show with his comedic touches, not to mention flexibility!
And without giving away the reveal, after you’ve seen The Evil Hate Monkey’s performance, you’ll never look at a banana in the same way again.
I can honestly, hand on heart, say I’ve never laughed so much during a cabaret show before. My friend and I both participated in on-stage games (which we both won) but even without the participation element, the simple joy, extreme hilarity, friendly competition and just damn good fun, makes The Miss Behave Gameshow quite simply unmissable.
I’ve already got tickets booked for two return visits.
The Miss Behave Gameshow is playing at the Studio, Sydney Opera House through to 18 March.
