The Stage UK - Brian G Cooper

Gilded Balloon Teviot - Edinburgh Fringe Festival

Multi-talented young Australians Gwen Trimboli and Tiffany Mulcahy bring their children’s comedy show from touring and television down under to a rollicking fringe debut.

As the ever-bouncy, cleverly-paired characters Daisy and Wilma, in multi-coloured costumes and rainbow socks and with a gaudy array of mini-circus props, they present a fast-moving – but not too fast-moving – family fun show which always greatly amuses, delights and engrosses even the very youngest in the audience. Both are adept jugglers with balls and clubs and their solo and duo juggling acts are engagingly accompanied by comic patter and slapstick action, and even one acrobatic sequence. Making animal shapes from balloons is another rapid forte, involving children on stage.

 Gigalees’ songs strike just the right note for the under-tens – Jelly in my Belly is a big hit, while Music makes me Tap is literally an all-singing, all-dancing number, with everyone joining in with great glee. Trimboli’s Daisy leads the comic action with Mulcahy’s Wilma always bumbling along to catch up.

Totally professional without being slick, they capture the audience with their zestful, bright and constantly funny show.
