Flo & Joan: Sweet Release (Avalon)

By | Published on Monday 15 August 2022

Flo and Joan are becoming a national treasure (safest not to say that in their hearing) and their 2022 show is as funny and acerbic as ever. For those still unacquainted with their inimitable style, the format is along the lines of Flanders and Swann meets the Two Ronnies at a rave (they’ll hate that too). The witty and often barbed songs are their unique selling point but everything is put together with such panache that you could miss their high professionalism. By the end of the show, the repetition of seemingly the simplest musical and visual gags has the audience falling out of their seats. If you haven’t seen them, go, and if you’ve seen previous shows, go again.

Assembly Roxy, until 28 Aug.
