Cameron James and Jarred Jekyll are two twenty-somethings who are so in sync they could have been in the womb together.
What do they do? What don't they do is the easier question. Paradise incorporates music, song, mime, character comedy and narrative storytelling into one big witty whacky play. The audience is taken on a chronological journey of fictional hair-brain adventures as the creative duo find their way to the best comedy festival there is: MICF.
Jekyll fits into no stereotypical labels; his reverberating intensity is both terrifying and mesmerising to watch. He holds it together like Tarzan Grip while in character. James, not to be outshine, balances out Jekyll perfectly with a more down-to-earth, diplomatic persona. They are a force to be reckoned with in terms of on-stage dynamic. The show is tight without being rigid, there is plenty of audience interaction and a healthy dose of the unexpected.
Being a fly on the wall while James and Jekyll try out new material, share ideas and rehearse would be fall down hilarious. If these guys keep it up they will be huge.
