McNeil And Pamphilon – Which One Are You?

By | Published on Tuesday 23 August 2011

Never have a comedy duo been so fixated on each other’s balls. If Morecambe and Wise were born in the 1980s and found themselves in dissatisfying nine-to-five jobs, then perhaps they would have written a sketch show a little like this. McNeil and Pamphilon had a marvellous bromance and a comedic chemistry that was wonderfully self-evident, spawning a series of electrifying gags which were executed with enviable panache and an endearing and relaxed comic presence. With a mix of musical numbers and exquisitely timed sketches, they played superbly off each other’s foibles in a fine example of sharp, cut-and-thrust comedy. Come! Gorge your humour-bones on casually-styled, face-achingly funny comedy.

Pleasance Dome, 3 – 28 Aug (not 17), 5.40pm (6.35pm), £7.00 – £9.50, fpp117.
