Jeromaia Detto: MUSH

MICF-MUSH-Jeromaia-DettoTo get an idea of what it’s like to see Jeromaia, imagine this: Mr Bean played by Jesus Christ.

Jeromaia is obviously aware of his resemblance to Jesus because he riffs off it in his first character, a Catholic or Orthodox priest. I’m sure he’s equally aware of why an audience member would liken his performance to Mr Bean.

He takes on a variety of characters. A romantic Italian beach boy. An aviator. A conductor. The aforementioned priest. And bin boy. Don’t forget bin boy.

Like Mr Bean, Jeromaia uses very few words. He delivers his humour almost entirely through expressions and movements.

The core difference between Mr Bean and Jeromaia, is that Jeromaia thrives on the reactions and engagement of a live audience. Each night would be a different show.

It’s clear Jeromaia is having heaps of fun. And his enthusiasm for making people laugh is infectious. Really infectious. Like COVID in a crowded lift in 2021.

And if you’re one of these people who thinks they’re safe if they don’t sit in the front row, you’re not. Somehow Jeromaia manages one-on-one moments with every person in the audience.

Jeromaia Detto: MUSH is refreshingly clean and rip-roaringly funny. Everyone needs to make the trek to Carlton to see this show. It has something for everyone. Except for the grumpy man in the row behind me (shout out!)
