Cook And Davies Present – Planet Earth And All Who Sailed In Her (Cook And Davies)

By | Published on Wednesday 20 August 2014

Planet Earth has been destroyed. All that survives is this sketch show, where Cook and Davies deliver a series of post-destruction sci-fi sketches from aboard their spaceship. Some of the sketches take a Douglas Adams-esque look at the mundane relics salvaged from earth; others are zany, weird or wordplay-based, presented in a ‘This Morning’ style rundown. The material is well written and tightly structured, though the duo break into ad libbed moments as they forget lines or comment on prop failures, adding an even more ramshackle feel to the already lo-fi show. Cook and Davies muddle through their fun sketches with silly glee, and the show is entertaining throughout an acceptable memorial to our once great planet.

Just The Tonic at The Caves, until 17 Aug.
