Review: Felix and the Scootermen - Self-Help Yourself Famous at Underbelly Bristo Square
3★★★

Felix and the Scootermen are here to tell you how to become famous! Sort of.

In this one hour performance, Felix Scoot and Lee Delamere present an entertaining “seminar” on how to become famous, with both performers bursting with energy from start to finish. Felix represents a failed musician who has suppressed the memory of being a washed-up has-been. His best friend, and drummer of his band Lee, assists him in keeping up the “famous musician” pretence. It includes singing, dancing, dream sequences and mystery; overall it creates a very bizarre and unique comedy show. 

The concept of the act was rather amusing, although the self-help seminar was what the entire show seemed to be built around, it soon became a backbone to the performance as the duo would comically and consistently find themselves getting off track.

This wacky comedy follows a somewhat improvisational style, gaining several laughs throughout the hour, however not as much as clearly intended. Despite this, the show was full of energy and builds itself well off a unique and interesting concept.

Felix and the Scootermen: Self-Help Yourself Famous, Underbelly Bristo Square, until 26th Aug, 4:40pm
