David Correos: Second Place Winner – review

May 11, 2016 Theatre

David Correos’s show goes from strange, to whacky, to downright outlandish. His energetic performance leaves him panting for air and the audience begging for more.

Correos uses his body as one of his main props. He contorts his wobbly flesh to make emojis, leaving the crowd in absolute hysterics.

He often discusses his relationship with his parents, mimicking the best Filipino accent I have ever heard. At times he tries to delve deeper and talk about sensitive topics, like childhood bullying. However these jokes don’t go down too well, as Correos even admits himself.

If he sticks to what he does best, which is silly, daring, and disgusting gags, his show would be close to perfect. He’s nominated for the Billy T Award this year, and with this killer set, his chances of coming first seem high.

Second Place Winner, until May 14, Vault at Q Theatre. Book Tickets.
