Horse And Louis – Tom Trumpin’! – Free (Horse And Louis / Laughing Horse Free Festival)

By | Published on Saturday 27 August 2011

After five minutes listening to Horse And Louis, your immediate reaction is to think of Flight Of The Conchords. The duo’s mix of comedy music and slightly off the wall gags are very reminiscent of the Kiwi pair’s stylings. However, Horse And Louis have a style of their own, using audience participation to determine the “Top Trump” of all the spectators. The pair have good stage presence and the songs are well written although at times they can trail off without a satisfactory finish. At points some of their short sketches are more innovative than the musical comedy they rely on, but they are endearing and funny nonetheless, and well work a look.

Laughing Horse at Espionage, 5 – 28 Aug (not 13, 22), 2.45pm (3.45pm), free, fpp88.
