Twins – Pret a Comedy (Twins)

By | Published on Friday 28 August 2015


The schtick here is that Jack, the boy of the really not very identical twins, has an hour to live. He needs to chomp through a bucket list, little of which is achievable in the time available, but can all be imagined theatrically. You know, through sketches. A mildly anarchic hour ensures, with a mixed bag of general absurdity. It’s not the tightest, or the slickest, and some set-ups take an age to get to a punchline that wasn’t worth the journey, but there are some gems and some bold bits of audience participation here. It’s a free show at midnight, as they keep reminding us, and that’s a fair point. A diverting enough start to the wee small hours.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 30 Aug.
