Bucket (Ed Eales-White and Jon Pointing)

By | Published on Monday 10 August 2015


In ‘Bucket’, Ed Eales-White and Jon Pointing perform a wonderful selection of sketches that have the audience in hysterics from start to finish. From aubergines and wrinkly peppers to stage combat fighters and the detectives who can’t wait for the ways in which their latest case is going to mess up their lives, prepare for some sublime slapstick comedy. Writers of BBC mini-series ‘Life Guru’, this pair are a fantastic double-act, interspersing the show with disagreements about what to include next: improvisation and physical theatre are high on Pointing’s list, much to Eales-White’s chagrin. With minimal props and plenty of energy, these guys take you on a journey through their bonkers imaginations, and it’s quite a ride.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 31 Aug.
