Carl Donnelly & John Robins
This article is from 2008.
Two chaps with bright futures amble along amiably with their separate stand-up sections, linked by an amusing satisfied drinking sound, fashioning out little urban observations and memories of childhood. Clearly, this has no bearing on the star rating, but Robins really should check that he has no 'Brians' ('a middle-aged name') in the audience before launching into a tale which slaughters one of them.
