No Pants Thursday

By | Published on Wednesday 31 August 2011

Do you love boy-bands, brightly coloured underwear and late-night sketch shows? Hate comedians wearing trousers? Then ‘No Pants Thursday’ is the show for you! A four-man sketch troupe mainly from Ireland, the boys dance around stage between skits in energetically choreographed routines and gorgeously coordinated pant-and-shoe combinations. As well as sketches, we see discussions between the four members of NPT and their own characters shine through – particularly that of the token dim Englishman. Though in-depth IRA jokes may leave some confused, the physical sides to the comedy more than make up for this. From re-imagined cartoon theme tunes to bad cops with bad puns, NPT are fantastic any day of the week and even if you are wearing pants.

Just The Tonic at The Caves, 5 – 28 Aug (not 17), 10.40pm (11.40pm), £6.50 – £7.50, fpp127
