Red Line Underground and Poor Tom's Gin presents
WITH ROB JOHNSON & HARRY MILAS
JULY 19 - 21
OLD FITZ THEATRE
PERFORMANCE TIMES: 10:00 PM
A monster stalks a boy through a formless wasteland; a brilliant psychoanalyst defies the limits of time and space; a carnival talent show goes drastically wrong. And all the while the question lingers: Who are the recidivists?
Sydney comedy duo Mantaur present The Recidivists, an original sketch and cabaret show exploring the absurd limits of human ambition. By turns hilarious and nightmarish, The Recidivists defies those who say creeping dread can't be funny (you know who you are). Accompanied by musical wunderkinds Allister Haire and Laurence Rosier Staines, Mantaur bring their unique brand of affectionate alienation to the Old Fitz for 3 nights only.
Mantaur is Sydney performers Rob Johnson and Harry Milas. They are two-time NSW Theatresports Champions, stalwarts of the Sydney Comedy and Fringe Festivals, creators of the live ensemble sketch show Fat On Purpose, and troupe members of Red Line's ITS Bang Bang Rodeo. In 2018, Rob has been touring the country with Calamity Jane while Harry has been storming the Adelaide Fringe Festival with his sell-out magic show The Unfair Advantage. They are thrilled to reunite for The Recidivists at the Old Fitz.
"Always funny... Fast-paced, unpredictable and maybe even actually insane." - Hijacked
"Rob Johnson and Harry Milas have a relationship that was wrought for farce." - The Music
