The Umbilical Brothers Present - Not Suitable for Children


Media release: Wednesday, March 14: Everyone’s favourite elastic Australian comedy duo, THE UMBILICAL BROTHERS are back with a brand new show.
It contains violence, sexual references, pseudo drug taking and frequent coarse language - it is absolutely NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN.
Frequent visitors to New Zealand, The Umbies last performed in Auckland in 2011 with their hit show ‘Heaven by Storm’, Theatreview said;
“These guys are world class – and a fantastic left-turn from the conventional stand up comedy shows. A must see for Umbi-fans and curious first-timers.”
Returning to Auckland this May (15-19) for a strictly limited season at Q Theatre with their lauded show NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN, join David (Collins) and Shane (Dundas) as they portray ‘Dane’ and ‘Shavid’ in a brain-melting journey to the most terrifying vista the human mind has ever encountered: the world of children’s television.

Witness the happy fly dance, purchase the most dangerous contraband, reminisce about beloved TV icons and get extremely moist in a children’s show so wrong that it’s completely unsuitable for children.

Under 15’s won’t be admitted, but if you’re an adult, bring your inner child along. It’s too late for that to be any more effed up than it already is.
“A very cleverly controlled stream of crazed consciousness” The Independent UK
“Unique, masterful and exceptional comedy” ***** The Clothesline
“undeniably ludicrous but absolutely essential” ***** Rip It Up
“a show that takes you back to the comfortable place of childhood and then smashes it in the most gloriously messed up way” Daily Review

The Umbilical Brothers – Not Suitable for Children
Auckland – Q Theatre @ 7pm, Duration 1hr10min
Tuesday, May 15 until Saturday May 19
Tickets on sale now: http://www.qtheatre.co.nz/umbilical-brothers-not-suitable-children

Joseph Cederwall Review: NZSO Plays Zappa

The first of the NZSO’s Shed Series concerts at the more informal and intimate space of Wellington's Shed 6 last Friday night featured music composed by, or with a connection to Frank Zappa. Zappa, a psychedelic rock legend, activist and popular culture figure and all round colourful character, was an excellent choice for the concert’s theme of innovation. More>>

Scoop Review of Books: Martin Edmonds' The Expatriates

This book is an extension of, and tribute to, the life’s work of James McNeish. Without sacrificing any degree of authorial independence, the result is gracefully written, handsomely produced, and likely to propagate many further works of its kind. More>>

Joe Cederwall Review: WOMAD 2018 - Harmony of Difference (part 1)

A friend described WOMAD as his “favourite white middle class celebration of diversity.” There is certainly an echo of truth to this as the crowd is still largely white and middle class, but this WOMAD for me represented that a better world is possible ... More>>

Harmony of Difference (part 2)

Top international world music artists seldom make it down to this neck of the woods, so for those of us into this sort of thing WOMAD is certainly a welcome addition to the cultural calendar. Now it is a case of waiting and looking forward to seeing what they manage to conjure up for next year. More>>

Howard Davis Review: A Bigger Splash - Te Papa Celebrates Twenty Years

Considering the available resources, this is a decidedly hit-and-miss affair, mainly due to some highly questionable curatorial decisions. In their overweening wish to "push boundaries," Charlotte Davy and Megan Tamati-Quennell have made a number of serious miscalculations by ignoring a basic rule - keep it simple. More>>
