A Kind of Surprise (Masud Milas and Sean Brightman)

By | Published on Tuesday 23 August 2011

This is sit-down comedy at its most meandering and affable. What little structured material there is here is essentially a plug for these comedians’ other shows. So while there is certainly comedic potential, it is never realised. Mainly, this is because Masud Milas and Sean Brightman seem to view this show as nothing but a warm-up for the rest of the day’s performances. Though there are moments of humour, it seemed more like they were making each other laugh, leaving the audience feeling as though they were witness to two friends having a jokey conversation. If you want to see either of these comedians, I recommend going to one of their actual shows rather than this hour long preamble.

Dragonfly, 6 – 27 Aug (not 9, 16, 23), 3.10pm (4.10pm), free, fpp105.
