More about LipSchtick
LipSchtick is a one man quick-change show, in which David Scarbie Mitchell evolves through seven characters and eleven costume changes without EVER leaving the stage. The audience sees the whole process which is fast paced, set to music and sometimes hysterically “out of control.”
LipSchtick is certainly mostly comedy, including lip-sync AND live vocals which blur the boundaries of reality as Scarbie changes character. Some audience members cannot distinguish which songs are actually sung live or are lip-sync due to Scarbie’s flawless technique and delivery. | The show is filled out with some improvisation elements I which thread throughout the show and keep each I performance fresh and spontaneous. Some audience members are included in the improvisation, resulting in unrestrained laughter.
Perhaps most important is that LipSchtick has a definitive storyline throughout the show reminding us how we are all very basically the same at heart in our human experience. This underlying inspirational aspect of the show adds depth and dimension. Audience members leave the show remarking “Wow, that was WAY MORE than I , expected!” Some even leave with a tear in their eye after the emotional and moving final number.
