Aliens Ate My Schnitzel!
An Aliens Ate My Schnitzel! sketch show would be a fine example of a well-meaning social commentary if it weren’t so utterly twisted. This male/female comedy double act present vibrant, saucy, toe-curling character sketches, with occasional electrocution.
Marvel at the Euro-pop divas jetting in from their triumphant tour of Intercontinental hotels in Germany, squirm at the inappropriate behaviour of Guru Rogan Josh, enjoy celebrity hairdressers Lammy and Pip ending world poverty with pineapple serum, and witness the bizarre rural practices of Joyce and Jean that involve cotton wool, mains electricity and ping pong balls.
In the real world Aliens Ate My Schnitzel! are Lheila Oberman and Timothy Dodd. They began working together in May 2007.
Oh dear. This was bad. And judging by the exodus of half of the audience and the overheard verdict of one woman who did sit through it as ‘heinous,’ I wasn’t the only one who held this opinion.
As the title – also the name of the duo themselves – suggests, the intention here is to be zany, but chucking out random notions proves not as easy as it looks. Most of the skits are badly written and lacking punchlines, and sometimes slips into the downright offensive, such as the ‘charitable’ hairdressers who want to send hair straighteners to Africa.
In this context other ‘foreign’ characters such as folk duo Folkin 'ell, where one translates for the other, and a seedy Eurodisco duo appear xenophobic, executed without warmth or much humour.
Occasionally the pair arrive at a good idea - an electrocution lottery draw, a guru who needs re-homing and their carefully filmed intro and outro involving a Wendy house and the duo in their pants (their films and music are at least professionally put together) - but they’re lost amid the weak material and distasteful ideas that pervade some of the sketches.
Overall, the effect is mean-spirited and distinctly light on laughs.

Hello. I saw them headline last night at The Poodle Club and they terrific. I'm still giggling. Cabaret of the daftest type (but obviously very clever). And super slick. Also gigged with em at Comedy Cottage. Again they stormed that one.
No save yourself the agony. Don't bother with this trash.
Don't waste your time you can never get this hour back.
Pantomine at its worst, avoid!
They're a refreshing change from the usual wordy and worthy 'mustn't offend anyone' safe yawn-fests. Go on. Laughing isn't illegal in this country just yet. Let go a ripper.
I saw aliens ate my schnitzel at the Hay On Wye festival a couple of months ago (twice) and they were brilliant... I cannot believe this review... I will definitely be checking them out at Edinburgh... the preview i saw was worthy of 5 stars and brilliant.
These absolute idiots are pretentious as hell God knows how a show like this made it into the Pleasance. It should be on a street corner.
