Frimston And Rowett

By | Published on Friday 19 August 2011

Ever wanted to know every joke about birds ever told? Come to Frimston and Rowett, who gleefully take the audience through a whirl of tight sketches that never overstay their welcome. A marvellous opening sketch about birthday presents is reprised more than once with a new twist each time, and the way in which the sketches are unified through character repetition is clever and never feels forced. If the endings to some of their sketches occasionally lack bite, this is only shown up by the strength of their material, a sketch about the similarity of gangster nicknames – “No, not Johnny Thai, Johnny Tie!” – being particularly brilliant. I can’t imagine the sun going down on these two comedians any time soon.

Just The Tonic at The Store, 4 – 29 Aug (not 16), 7.00pm (8.00pm), £7.00 – £8.00, fpp80.
