Ford And Akram – Humdinger (Live Nation)

By | Published on Thursday 25 August 2011

Louise Ford is a bum-bag wearing ‘slow romantic’; Yasmine Akram decided she was too beautiful to live in Ireland any longer. Together they make a pretty dysfunctional team. Here they look back at the various escapades that have strained their relationship, including bar mitzvahs, mime school and encounters with Colin Farrell. This show is only gently humorous and rarely riotously funny; at times the pace seems to drag, feeling too scripted and forced. That said, there is a lot of potential in this show and parts of it are very funny. Overall, it’s a perfectly good way to spend an hour, but not what you’d call a stand-out success.

Pleasance Courtyard, 3 – 29 Aug (not 15), 3.30pm (4.25pm), £7.00 – £9.50, fpp76.
