Review by Elise Faulkner
Sam Simmons vs Tegan Higginbotham! Tommy Little vs David Quirk dressed as Tony Abbott! Nick Cody being body slammed after heckling from the crowd! The Wrestling had it all.
Take a group of professional wrestlers, give them a group of professional comedians to train with and then let them battle it out in a high stakes wrestling match at the town hall. Now you have The Wrestling.
This show was so much fun! The comedians all did an amazing job at executing impressive wrestling moves and the professional wrestlers kept the stakes high, knowing exactly how to amp up the crowd before the biggest moves. You find yourself getting swept up in the excitement of it all; taking sides and cheering or booing whenever necessary.
The Wrestling was a one-off special event at the festival so you'll have to wait until next year to catch it, but make sure you do; it was amazing.
