Peacock & Gamble – Heartthrobs (Avalon Promotions)

By | Published on Wednesday 14 August 2013

A delirious spectacle of side-splitting comedy. Powerhouse character comedy duo Peacock and Gamble, proudly sponsored by the fictional Yuki Butter (the running theme of the show), provide a phenomenal and highly imaginative performance. Starting with clips of the award-winning duo in different locations dubbing songs in Japanese, appallingly, they keep the young audience in uproarious laughter with a variety of sketches; from virtual internet dating to a game-show involving letting a sleeping deer lie undisturbed. They gel perfectly on stage: Peacock takes on the role of a boisterous, hyperactive man-child, constantly kept in check by the more sane Gamble. Outstanding.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 25 Aug, 9.45pm.
