Finlay And Joe: Past Our Bedtime (Finlay And Joe)

By | Published on Thursday 17 August 2023

This duo are definitely having fun on stage. They begin with an ear-worm and the revelation that they need a nap, a break from performing. What follows is clusters of skits that meet with various degrees of success, while a fun meta narrative ties everything together. While every skit concept is incredibly creative, it’s the jokes within that take a fumble, missing potential belly laugh moments. However, I found the most comedic moments to be when they were just being themselves and having fun, as their infectious energy definitely rubs off on the audience. The talented duo understand what makes an entertaining comedy show but I feel like this showcase only offered a snippet of what they could do. Still, don’t sleep on seeing this show.

Underbelly Bristo Square, until 28 Aug.
