About Benson & Hill (3 stars)

This article is from 2008.

This likeable double act play tag, so you get Geordie comic Luke Benson's audience-based improvisations and clever wordplay followed by his Leicestershire counterpart Martin Hill's observations about everyday life laced with surreal stream-of-consciousness rants. Their routines are a nice contrast, as are their stage personas, gangly Benson awkward and spiky, handsome Hill affable and charming. A bit of work on the jokes wouldn't go amiss, however.

Sweet Teviot, 0870 241 0136, until 25 Aug, 5.15pm, £7–£8 (£6–£7).
