Jollie (3 stars)

This article is from 2009.

What do you get if you cross two men called John and Ollie? Why, ‘Jollie’ of course! And what do you get if you base an entire hour on their invitation to perform at ‘an important European festival’? Story-based songs on various countries, all delivered with impeccable musicianship. But despite a strong start, too many gags end up scoring ‘nul points’.

Underbelly, 08445 458 252, until 30 Aug, 6.55pm, £6.50–£10.50 (£8–£9).

Big news! New One: John and Ollie have been commissioned by an important European festival. New Two: this year John married Ollie's ex-girlfriend Amy. That's what this show's about. **** (List); **** (ThreeWeeks).
