Give Me The Funnies!

By | Published on Saturday 20 August 2011

The trio of comedians play to a tiny room upstairs in the Three Sisters and seem completely disconnected from one another. Though Ben Jay – the first act – has some promise, Sarah Callaghan garbles her jokes and alienates half her audience, while Nico Yearwood’s ‘Mr Susan’ character is under-developed. Although this last act is the highlight – mixing linguistic jokes and suggestions with insights from an outside observer who claims to be from another planet – it fails to really charm us. A number of missed opportunities and elongated stories leave jokes lost inside their own structure, and the sheer lack of cohesion between the acts leaves us wondering why they’re put together at all.

Laughing Horse at The Three Sisters, 5 – 19 Aug, 1.05pm (2.05pm), free, fpp83.
