ELECTRICITY: THE CAGED PONY
Press Reviews

 

TRAPPED - MOOR, MADNESS AND PONIES

The show, a dangerous blend of logic and possible madness, is a worthy follow up to his success at last year's festival. Moor has a strong physical stage presence.
Adrian Dawson, The Stage, 11th August 1994


With his gangly windmill limbs, pop-up ears and elastic jawbone, Ben Moor has been blessed with the perfect body for comedy. Sometimes his physical presence is so startling, you forget to listen to what he says. If you like your comedy manic, breakneck and crammed with puns and historical illusions, this could be for you.
Clair Smith, The Scotsman


LUNATIC FRINGE

Recommended are the 30 character in Electricity: The Caged Pony. All of them are Ben Moor, a remarkable human being who looks like a human bendy toy who has been struck several hundred times with a pick axe. To hear him talk about... the man who tap danced so fast his feet went into hyper-space is to experience comedy satori.
Ian Black, Sunday Times, 14th August 1994


Somewhere it is written that people with bodies that make you weep with laughter will not be blessed with equally hilarious minds. But Ben Moor... gives this the lie. His material is so brilliant, line after line tripping out with blinding speed - sometimes a bit too fast, possibly - that us normals can only open our minds and mouths in awe. Ben Moor, if not a comedy king, is a clown and crown prince.
