Dan Antopolski, Tom Craine & Nat Luurtsema: Jigsaw

By | Published on Thursday 25 August 2011

Sketch comedians usually rely on props and costumes to pull together short stints of comedic brilliance; that said, these three are established stand-ups, so you might have expected a minimalist approach: these three didn’t need much more than two stools, a stocking and some lentils to create a great balance between a stand-up show and a sketch set. Insanely witty one-liners were inserted between the bigger skits, which included spoofs of ‘Dragons’ Den’, pregnancy, and ‘The Godfather’, making this quite a jigsaw-puzzle of humour. They return to some of their jokes during the hour, but the lack of an overall theme is quite refreshing. If you’ve been here for a while and you’re tired of watching people on stage try too hard, check out this show: these guys are just naturally funny.

Pleasance Courtyard, 3 – 29 Aug (not 16), 5.45pm – 6.45pm, £7.00 – £9.50, fpp98.
