Will Tredinnick’s flavour of physical comedy as explored in the collection of sketches and gags that make up Pickled Sink is certainly as nonsensical as it is endearing. The first things I noticed about Will were his goofy charm, his eclectic yet elegant sense of style and his surprisingly impressive dance moves!
Pickled Sink incorporates stand-up, story telling and roleplay (with a healthy dose of audience participation) into a light-hearted, fun-filled hour of entertainment. He had everyone in the intimate Breakout venue out the back of arts collective The Mill (the gallery of which is worth a look before the show) giggling and feeling like they were all part of the show. Will brought out the best in the audience members he recruited as characters in his world by being incredibly supportive and encouraging, and I applaud him for handling the hiccups that come with opening a brand-new show with professionalism, grace and good humour. Pickled Sink has some truly hilarious and magical moments.
I greatly enjoyed Pickled Sink – it made me feel excited to check out Tredinnick’s other show at Fringe this year, Table for Two, and any future productions he’ll be bringing to Adelaide in years to come. Check it out if supporting some quality independent, experimental comedy sounds up your alley!
