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.
The children responded positively to the performance with laughter and lots of 'Oohs' and 'ahhs'. They were very impressed with the gymnastics and loved the 'slapstick' style. All said they enjoyed the show because it was different.
