John-Luke Roberts And Nadia Kamil – The Behemoth (Draw HQ)

By | Published on Friday 26 August 2011

From the opening sketch of ‘The Behemoth’, a few very important things are made clear. One: if you hate ridiculous, wonderfully odd sketch comedy, this is not the show for you. Two: if you’re sitting at the back, behind a pillar, or in any other position where the whites of John-Luke Roberts’ eyes are not visible, you are missing out on some of the best moments in this show. And three: if you carry a joke on for long enough, it will be funny again. A heady whirl of laughter, ‘The Behemoth’ sprints through carefully labelled sketches (the ‘Murder Mystery Sketch’ is a particular highlight) to a bizarre, fantastic finale. As mighty as its namesake.

Pleasance Courtyard, 3 – 29 Aug (not 16), 4.45pm (5.40pm), £7.50 – £11.00, fpp100.
