The Moonfish Rhumba (2 stars)

This article is from 2009.

Billed as a ‘unique blend of musical mayhem and off-the-wall comedy’, this double act is, at least, visually unique as Dan Lees and Guy Combes sport the looks of a 1930s detective and a Hispanic Freddie Mercury respectively. Their material is a similarly jarring clash between its potential and the misfiring, crude reality. It has neither the sharpness of Lees’ suit nor the impressiveness of Combes’ moustache.

Gilded Balloon Teviot, 622 6552, until 31 Aug, 10.45pm, £8.50–£9.50 (£7.50–£8.50).
