Sofa Specific (Sofa Specific Productions)

By | Published on Sunday 11 August 2013

Just how much fun can you have with a two seater sofa, four grown men and no words? The answer is a surprisingly large amount. “The Idiots” craft scenes from Titanic, stories of sickness, death and resurrection and just plain buffoonery from nothing more than a tired piece of soft furnishing. Not every section is a hit – some parts are more clever than funny – and the whole thing feels a little like a two seater that has been stretched into a three piece suite, but there is plenty of inventiveness and skill on show. ‘Sofa Specific’ is a brave attempt at something different, and is worth a look if you fancy some sit down, rather than stand-up, comedy.

Just The Tonic at The Caves, until 25 Aug (not 13), 12.55pm.
