Comedy Review: Damien & Ross in Safari Psychosis, Tuxedo Cat (performances until 23rd September)

Damien & Ross are lost in the jungle, how they got there, who the heck know? All that matters in this little production is what hijinks – or problems – will the two get up to? Including parts of the audience, the two try to figure out in the crazy-ness that is Safari Psychosis.

Damien Vosk, a veteran of the improv scene in Melbourne brings the theatrical skills, while stand up comedian Ross Purdy brings the jokes along. It’s an interesting meld where some interesting hilarity combines into a weird exploration of absurdity. Sometimes it’s a little too absurd, the mooning being a little too over the top for this little member to withstand.

But hey, its ludicrousness is where the fun lies, and Vosk and Purdy look like they surely are having fun up there. The prop work is a delight to see, a highlight being an obsession with a crocodile

Safari Psychosis is a unique romp through twisted yet poignant comedy about friendship, flashbacks and very wacky times. Animal masks and all.


Damien & Ross in Safari Psychosis is being performed at Melbourne’s Tuxedo Cat until the 23rd September as part of Melbourne Fringe Festival. For more info, head here
