Frimston And Rowett – A Sketch Show (Frimston and Rowett)

By | Published on Wednesday 7 August 2013

Frimston and Rowett presented a selection of smart sketches that worked well as a whole, and recurring themes ensured that the set was tight and well paced. A clever reinterpretation of all their sketches towards the end worked especially well, while the pair definitely seemed strongest when presenting fast-paced word play, which ensured a number of very funny scenarios. Their take on a ‘sketch palindrome’ was a particular highlight, although it was balanced out by a number of rather mediocre slapstick and mime sections. Meanwhile, some sketches which relied on pop culture seemed a little dated, although certainly still accessible. The ‘Frimston and Rowett’ partnership was well-crafted and likeable, however, and there was certainly enough material here to create an enjoyable 50 minutes.

Laughing Horse @ Bar 50, until 25 Aug, 1.00pm.
