The Return Of O’Farahan And Keith – Free (Jon Reed And Kevin Dawson/ Free Festival)

By | Published on Tuesday 16 August 2011

Dubbing over an old American cop show with northern accents sounds naff and lazy, but this show is actually very funny. The obvious hard work that has gone into its production is impressive; being well-rehearsed and possessing the ability to use a projector without technical difficulties early on in the Festival is an achievement itself. These are two very clever guys with a bit of talent who clearly did not come to the Free Fringe to mess about. If you would like to see some original comedy that does not involve sketches or a bloke on an empty stage with a microphone, then this is for you. With their slick underground act, there is potential here for a cult following.

Laughing Horse at The Hive, 4 – 28 Aug, 3.45pm (4.45pm), free, fpp139.
