Anesti Danelis: Six Frets Under

Amused Mooose Comedy Award Finalist Musical Comedian, Anesti Danelis, returns with a new hour of witty, ridiculous, and delightfully dark comedic songs that celebrate all the fun things in life like: identity crisis, stealing from work, inescapable rumours, alternative medicine, fearless youth, goats? and much more! So pull up a seat and let's ask life's biggest questions like 'why are we here?’ and ‘if people print their missing cat posters in black and white, do they even want to find their cats?’ in hopes to help us understand our existence and toe-tap that existential dread away.

"Brilliant blend of sharp wit, optimism and perfectly dark humour" ★★★★★(Edinburgh Festivals Magazine).

"Anesti Daniels delivers the funny with a hefty side of heart. Not only were his songs expertly composed, the lyrics we’re freaking hilarious" (Mooney On Theatre)

News and Reviews for this Show

August 10, 2019    The Mumble

I love it when a show launches a smile onto your face & just leaves it sitting there for the duration – like yoga for the mouth muscles. Last year the Mumble had the delight of seeing Canadian musical comedy duo, Death Ray Cabaret & found them to be quirky sorcerers indeed! At the same their mate, Anesti Danelis, was an Amused Moose finalist. Roll on 2019 & of course I had to go & check out Anesti’s return for those aforementioned reasons – he’s supposed to be quality & I now find myself a fan of Toronto’s ley-line meetings of musical comedy minds.

Anesti Danelis is like, good, so good. A well-deserved finalist & a master of his craft. The eloquent clarity of his singing voice & the lucidity with which he presented his ‘stories’ combine into a bouquet experience, like walking through a country garden draped in blossoms in the morning. The stories aren’t quite so floral as my metaphor, however, they are all wee lantern-lit snippets into his world, where he accidentally says ‘incest’ in a candle-shop & tinstructs his landlord he has turned into an actual bird to avoid paying his rent.

Myself & the audience were completely enamoured by the pretty flawless songs, among which are scattered buzzing one-liners & clever philosophical epigrams such as ‘how come children are the future when they ruin our hopes & dreams.’ Of the songs, I loved the playground jazz of ‘What Do Men Really Like,’ & of course the song which probably got him nominated for those Moose-antlers in the first place – Goats. I swear down, this IS the funniest song I have EVER heard; a surreal journey on a violin that combines Greek folk music with whatever psychedleic drugs Anesti was on at the time he created the number. Click Here For Review
