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 Gigalees performance was a great act for our Kindergarten to year 2 students. The 'slapstick' comedy was right at their age level. Teachers and students made many positive comments. In a few years we would love to get the "Gigalees" back into the school.
