Brain rinse is an immersive comedy show starring you the audience. Mike Raffone invites you to join in with sketches that express the whole gamut of human experience. Love, suicide, Beethoven and much more. Not a brain wash but a light rinse. Light entertainment gestalt therapy. Interactive, spontaneous and fun.
A 1 hour full length theatre show.
A bold exercise in interactive character comedy as Alberto Toscaninny takes to the stage to conduct Beethoven's 5th. For the audience a slow realisation dawns that they are the orchestra. For Toscaninny a slow realisation dawns that the musicians don't seem to know what they are doing. Mike Raffone gently coaxes not only laughs from his audience, but also a virtuoso rendition of the first few bars of this iconic classical music piece. It's high brow art as only a comic entertainer and audience can perform.
The Conductor can be 10 - 20 mins, depending on what you want.
Mike Raffone turns street entertainer and moves from physical to verbal comedy and beyond in this spoof talent show on the street thats packed full of laughs. Witty and skilful Modern clowning gives way to outrageous audience participation, as Mike recreates the iconic Village People in a spectacular dance finale. Here is a genuine testimonial posted on his Facebook fan page.
"We saw you at the Edinburgh Fringe yesterday and you got my husband to be the exclamation mark in the YMCA line up. I have never seen anything so funny in all my life and our 8 year old son says he will remember it for the rest of his life. Thank you for making our visit to Edinburgh Fringe so memorable and keep up the fantastic entertainment."
A 45 minute street theatre spectacular.
