Strong and Wrong

This lively duo come across like a pair of children’s TV entertainers who can certainly hold a tune. The handful of comic songs employing guitar, ukulele and banjo that punctuate their quick-fire sketch show are punchy and well-performed. It’s a shame, then, that the rather lame sketches fall an awful long way short of the music.

The Caves, 556 5375, until 29 Aug, 2.15pm, £8–£9 (£7–£8).

Ladieees and Gentlemen... gasp in amazement at sketches performed without safety nets! Chuckle contentedly as a performer's fake moustache refuses to stay on! Scream in consternation when you realise the circus metaphor stretches no further and no circus references whatsoever are made in the show! An hour long, fast…

Think we must have been watching a different show to the 2* reviewer!! The audience, when I was in, were loving it and the final race card (go see it to understand) was cracking.
I want an El Mariachi 2000 thingymebob (or something like that) to sing sweet nothings to me.
Fast, funny and very funky!
