The Pin – Ten Seconds With The Pin (The Pleasance)

The Pin

The Pin have created a sketch show, the only problem is they have limited material! Fortunately the two stars of the show display fantastic ability and take humour to the next level as they spend their set hilariously replaying and editing sketches to ‘pad the show out’. We are already in stitches, yet then they somehow make what they are doing even funnier. Clever punch lines demonstrate the duo’s flair for written comedy, as they use their incisive wit and smart humour to keep us laughing. The better material seems more heavily weighted to the first half, when the editing gag is still fresh, and towards the end I perhaps started to feel the concept’s bite waning; but overall a great show by a really funny duo who know how to entertain an audience.

Pleasance Dome, until 31 Aug.
