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.

Edinburgh Festival 

The craziest things here are possibly the double-act's outfits, but then the double-act are pretty crazy themselves, in a zany sort of way. This is a brightly coloured, high energy performance in which the pair on stage barely pause for breath; Wilma and Daisy lead their audience enthusiastically through a series of clowning and circus tricks, during the course of almost an hour of classic slapstick, balloon models and juggling. The buffoonery may at times be predictable, but is still funny and gets laughs from parents as well as children. Mind, the dancing only goes well for the kids whose parents also get into the swing. This is a show high on energy, smiles, skill and laughter.

Melbourne International Comedy Festival

My mission was to review the Gigalees show at the Trades Hall New Ballroom for the Melbourne Comedy Festival. Now as a 42-year-old, I was not sure the best way of approaching this. How do I know if this kids' show was any good? What do I look for? Moreover, would I look out of place if I didn't have any kids there with me? Therefore, I decided to take my trump card to the show, my 5-year-old son Liam. If his non-stop giggling and dancing is any indication, then the Gigalees are a hit.

Melbourne International Comedy Festival

A great show for kids. Full of colour and music this team have relentless energy (exceptionally handy when dealing with kids). Well thought out, nice harmonies in the songs and some good old clowning around, Daisy and Wilma impress with their acrobatic and juggling skills, get the kids nice and tired with a lot of singing and dancing and keep the jokes coming at a steady pace. I wish I'd taken my nephews, they would've loved it.

Melbourne International Comedy Festival

This is a colourful, high energy clown show that the kids will love. 

Wilma and Daisy perform all manner of juggling tricks, acrobatics and balloon sculpting, keeping the kids on the edge of their seats. There are also some boppy songs to dance along to and great audience interaction. 

Good school holiday fun!

Feedback

February 2016 Gigalees - one of the 'best' shows we have had so far. The children were mesmerised from the start to finish with the pranks, jokes and acrobatics. Daisy and Wilma were most professional in their performance from booking, setting up the environment and interacting with ...
