Worbey And Farrell – Well Strung! (Corrie McGuire for Objective Talent By Arrangement With Michael Vine Associates)

By | Published on Saturday 20 August 2011

Four hands playing on one piano turned out to create a massively impressive hour’s entertainment. These smart showmen exhibited their abundant skill as piano acrobats and masters of the keys, combined with clever music trivia, a quiz and a touch of audience participation. Steven Worbey and Kevin Farrell’s rapport was endearing, but the comedy verged on being dated and a little obvious, and it didn’t quite compete amidst the throngs of innovative Fringe comedians. That being said, they had impeccable comic timing on the piano and achieved something quite unique. Whilst not pulling off that highly sought after “cool” status, the show was wonderful entertainment – and made me wish I’d never given up on those piano lessons.

Udderbelly’s Pasture, 3 – 28 Aug (not 15), 3.00pm (4.00pm), £8.50 – £12.00, fpp166.
