Why You Should Watch The Delightful Sausage: Ginster's Paradise
The Delightful Sausage, a comedy double act, has been delighting viewers with its sketches since 2017. They are best known for their hit single Butterfly, which managed to climb to the number one spot on the US Billboard Hot 100 Chart. Their most recent masterpiece, Ginster’s Paradise, comes to London following a nomination for ‘Best Show’ at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards. Ginster’s Paradise, at its heart, is a parody that explores the lives of working-class people employed by the British holiday industry. The show expertly captures the stark contrast between the sickeningly idealised commercials promoting holiday culture, and the somber lives of those who work to keep this industry afloat. Carefully crafted jests and creative visuals complement the underlying theme of Ginster’s Paradise. From the hilarious mascot who hugs people in the audience to a massive ice-cream named Colonel Whippy who struggles to make it onto the stage, audience participation is thoroughly encouraged throughout the production.
The audience is introduced to Ginster’s world with a cackling low-quality film that inaugurates the show. The video claims to be an advert, but resembles a warning message; showing the holiday campsite to be filled with ailing animals, conniving characters, and hazardous buildings. There are no strict rules that govern this world. Cantrill and Gledhill are uncharacteristically upbeat about the whole affair, enforcing fun and fake smiles on the campsite. Although the show frequently deviates from the main storyline, Ginster’s Paradise remains fresh throughout. There are plenty of well-justified twists and turns that make the sketch all the more riveting. Who is Colonel Whippy and why is it so dangerous to upset him? What sinister secrets are the new Salmon Coats hiding from the guests at the campsite?
