Those Two (Elf Lyons & Masud Milas)

By | Published on Tuesday 23 August 2011

As I stepped into this small Free Fringe venue, I was impressed with how big the audience was. Perhaps it had something to do with the torrential rain. As I suspect I’m not the only person unfamiliar with ‘these two’, I was not entirely sure what to expect. I’m pleased to say, however, I found myself laughing, quite soon and quite a lot. Elf, performing stand-up for her fifth time ever, regales us with stories from her life, including dating, boarding school and erotica (“I prefer sandwiches to sex”). Masud spoke of his international roots and attempts to write a hit record. Overall, it’s an enjoyable show and particularly impressive considering how new they are to the game.

The Banshee Labyrinth, 7 – 27 Aug (not 15), 12.50pm (1.50pm), free, fpp158.
