Pajama Men – Just The Two Of Each Of Us (Pajama Men and Assembly)

By | Published on Friday 16 August 2013

From the moment they walked on stage, the atmosphere was electric. The ‘Pajama Men’, used no props, only the audience’s imagination, to sculpt a kaleidoscope of cartoonish, eccentric and often caricatured characters, whose storylines gradually revolve together. There’s the flamboyant Spaniard who finds every challenge too easy, then a king and his evil wizard. With their mixture of sketch comedy and physical theatre, Shenoah Allen and Mark Chavez satirise everything from medieval fantasy, to 50s ‘Creature Feature’ movies and American TV. The show is accompanied beautifully by Kevin Hume, whose melodic improvisation perfectly sets the atmosphere for each scene. The show is infinitely clever and endlessly entertaining; I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Assembly Roxy, until 26 Aug (not 12, 19), 9.00pm.
