A Bunch of Talentless Wannabes @ The New Theatre

“A Bunch of Talentless Wannabes” is a fantastically entertaining show devised by the New Theatre. The show takes a satirical approach towards television talent contests such as “Pop Idol” and “X Factor”. Throughout the show, the audience is introduced to ten very contrasting acts, including a significant input from the theatre’s tech team! All acts are thoroughly enjoyable to watch, particularly presenter Andy’s contribution with the help of his co-host Matt.

The two presenters provide original humour throughout the show, impersonating wittering television hosts such as Ant and Dec and Davina McCall. The judges are also amusing and it is pleasing to see that the two characters have such unique personalities. One particular act has some very unusual support from background dancers. The show closes in a humorous style with the most successful act winning a rather disappointing reward!

If you enjoy mocking television talent shows and want to see some very witty acts, this is a must see performance! It runs from Thursday 19th February until Saturday 21st February. Keep your eyes out for Britney Spears and the Vengaboys!
