The Three Englishmen – Optimists

By | Published on Thursday 25 August 2011

Irreverent, charismatic, and beautifully delivered, these musical comedy sketches are reminiscent of an updated Monty Python. I would query a 12+ rating on a show with quite so much swearing, but your teenagers will definitely find this show hilarious. Exploring the strange quirks of British culture in their own lyrical and unexpected way, Ben Cottam, Nick Hall, Jack Hartnell and Tom Hensby extort many belly-laughs and guffaws from an audience of all ages. In fact, they are so funny that at times they couldn’t resist laughing at their own jokes; luckily they had the personality to pull this off and it added to the humour. From witty songs to all-out physical comedy, there’s definitely something for everyone here.

Just The Tonic at The Caves, 4 – 28 Aug (not 17), 4.00pm (5.00pm), £7.00 – £9.00, fpp158.
