The three local lads who made their fame from the side boob gag hit the Velvet Lounge like a bra strap pulled back and released. Suns of Fred are three good mates who, in the vein of the “Doug Anthony All-stars” in the 80s, are a high energy singing and dancing trio.
Be warned, this genre of humour is not for the prudish. It is crude, fast paced but coated with melodious harmonies-these lads can sing! It is also extremely dangerous to be in the front row. You could say it is interactive but that would involve voluntary participation. Instead Sly, Fox and Mickey J, who make up Suns of Fred, are in the audiences' faces from woe to go.
Clearly, this form of comedy has a grateful and appreciative audience obvious from the laughter and applause in the venue. Give yourself a laughter injection and see one of the three remaining shows.
This week's new sets include music from locals Gurrumul, Josh Pyke and West Thebarton Brothel Party plus new tunes from The Maccabees and Albert Hammond Jr.
