The Malcolm Muggeridge Memorial Hour (Thomas Ogg and Bradley Cloche)

By | Published on Tuesday 16 August 2011

Had this show been called the ‘Malcolm Muggeridge Memorial Minute’, then I would still have doubted the ability of its performers to keep the audience entertained for the full duration. This was a dreadful litany of appallingly unfunny sketches, most of which involved Bradley Cloche shouting deafeningly into the microphone, bravely paying no heed to unnecessary subtleties like timing or humour. Thomas Ogg was considerably better, but ultimately the performers’ total lack of chemistry destroyed even the slightly cleverer sketches. If you do want to see this show, see it now, as I can only imagine that a zombie Malcolm Muggeridge is going to rise and extract a terrible vengeance on those that have involved his name in this enterprise.

Laughing Horse at The Three Sisters, 4 – 28 Aug, 1.45pm (2.50pm), free, fpp112.
