Three Weeks: Mythbunking (10/08/11)

Find the original article here.

Alan Shearer is a deity in Peru. Gary Barlow has bionic legs. These are just some of the surreal myths circulated by a society called ‘Mythbunkers’ who are now ostensibly on the lookout for new members. Through entertaining media such as video clips, live anecdotes from our two friendly neighbourhood mythbunkers and even a sing-along with the audience, we’re educated on elements such as the history of myths and how to spread them. The jokes have a habit of being as makeshift as the props used but there’s a warming charm from geeky character, John, which mostly makes up for it. Poking fun at myths and facts alike, ‘Mythbunkers’ doesn’t take itself too seriously, and is all the more refreshing for it.

Underbelly, 5 – 28 Aug (not 16), 1:10pm (2:10pm), £7.50 – £10.00, fpp123.
