Goodbear Ed2016

Hilarious duo Goodbear zip through the some of the biggest moments in their characters’ lives in this highly polished hour of comedy. It’s a series of sketches loosely tied together by the aforementioned theme – important days in the life of a vast array of colourful personalities – and the pair rely on tightly choreographed sound and lighting cues to hit comedic notes with a impressive professional deftness. Their dynamic together is however the strongest part of the show, with Henry Perryment’s talent for delivery beautifully complemented by Joe Barnes’ well timed physical comedy – he can have the audience in stitches with as little as a highly arched eyebrow. An excellent show that clearly demonstrates that good sketch comedy needs off-the-chart chemistry to make it side splittingly funny.

Bedlam Theatre, until 28 Aug.
