Max and Iván

High energy, fast-paced sketches

This youthful double act presents a near-universal gung-ho set of high energy, fast-paced sketches, raucously covering everything from re-imaginings of blockbusters to advert appeals for a charity for models with eating disorders (where the only disorder is eating). Strong physical performers, the simplest acts are best, but the seemingly climactic flash of full frontal is a little unnecessary.

C central, 0845 260 1234, until 30 Aug, 9.30pm, £8.50–£10.50 (£7.50–£9.50).
