Double Denim: Adventure Show (Hey Boss)

By | Published on Saturday 10 August 2019

Once cruise attendants Michelle and Laura have ushered us onto the imaginary ship upon which the plot is somewhat loosely anchored, they whip off their nautical gear to reveal the eponymous denim. A giddily high-paced, gag-packed hour ensues. Reference points include Atomic Kitten, ‘Lost’, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson – who should totally stop by and do the audience participation bit one night – and, er, crabs. All delivered through a mix of songs, physical comedy, clowning, daft props, sharp one-liners and, despite the silliness, compelling character comedy. For all the apparent anarchy, they are a tremendously slick double act, scarcely missing a beat (despite several attempts to make one another corpse). Do climb aboard the good ship Double Denim.

Underbelly Cowgate, until 25 Aug.
