Review: Dirty Sexy Politics at MICF
Sam Rankin | On 31, Mar 2015
Samuel Valentine and Tom AlbertÂ hail originally from Queensland, but you wouldn’t know it. There fast paced, vaudevillian cabaret style of comedy fits very comfortably in Melbourne and indeed the Butterfly Club.
“Dirty Sexy Politics” is a whiplash fast musical journey through modern Australia’s modern political system. The duo’s musical ability is fierce, with Valentine and Albert hopping ferociouslyÂ from guitar, accordion, ukuleleÂ and even a trombone, ripping through genres with ease.
The pair have a great and simple format, moving through the political landscapeÂ using visual slides and witty songs, from a love ballad to Gina RinehartÂ a stomping Soviet inspired Union song. If you want ridiculously rude, fun and slickly produced show to kick off your festival, “Dirty Sexy Politics” is a sure bet.
