This is theatre stacked on meta-theatre stacked on more meta-theatre stacked on some Nietzsche (and yes, he appears at one point. So does a Nazi. And an elk. Or do they?).

Reviews/Melbourne
Making their grand entrance onto the stage, clad only in velvet superhero-like capes, the fabulously peppy puppeteers introduced themselves, and faster than any of us anticipated, we were “introduced” to their willies, the true stars of the show.

With his latest show, he's not so much A Stupid Liar as he is brutally honest about men, women and what really happens at a TV production meeting. Maybe too honest about the latter?

With multiple Muppets adorning the side of the stage like prizes to be won at a carnival, from the onset an audience knows Puppet Up is going to be keeper. Colourful, fast and fun, it's a 2014 MICF addition that won't disappoint.

Reviews/Melbourne
From the get-go, it's clear that Deceit is positioned as a magic act in a world of its own; it straddles the gap between expert sleight-of-hand and a welcoming self-deprecation, that's rare in pieces as polished as this.
