Maybe there is in fact a perfect formula for creating the perfect Fringe show? Overarching this abundance of sketches is a premise that the twins Hugo and Patrick McPherson have been mentored by the legendary director Sam Mendes and have found that perfect Fringe comedy formula. From a punchy opening to the ultimate climax, the show is relentlessly packed with jokes that had the audience laughing. It’s fast paced, but you’re never confused about what’s going on because of the strength of the show’s premise. The twins know how to tease the audience, do brilliant call backs, and can make repeated gags remain funny, which ensured that this promising pair had the room’s full attention throughout.
