Gurning in place of gags
This Canadian duo will make you laugh, but not in a way you’ll thank them for. They sensibly wring dry the comedic potential of their distinguishing features (one’s Jewish, one has scoliosis) at the earliest opportunity, but too many of the subsequent skits are simply overlong re-enactments of famous scenes from 90s screen blockbusters, with gurning in place of gags.
