Review: Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre – Minging Detectives
The Gilded Balloon is the home once again for the Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre. This mad-capped hour of sock puppetry serves up a hilarious segment of madcap entertainment, courtesy of Kev F Sutherland.
This year’s outing was under the banner of ‘Minging Detectives’, which engaged the audience to a no-holds-barred comedic hour of reflective references to TV police characters and comedic banter from days gone by.
As a gangster and a detective, the Socks truly captivated the attentive audience with their songs, puns and often amusing and chaotic storyline. The wit and charm did at times achieve a buttock clenched audience reeling with a spin on ‘My Brother’ with a jihadist Sock. This being said, Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre rarely disappoints. Yes, you must expect near to the bone humour, but this is complemented by the entertaining quick-fire puns and hilarious audience engagement from the extremely talented Sutherland and of course those rather wicked and gifted Socks!
