Peacock and Gamble’s Emergency Broadcast
Childish mischief and stupendous invention
This article is from 2011.
Combining the childish mischief of John Belushi with the victimised protestations of the underdog, Ray Peacock almost walks away with this show. But Ed Gamble is the perfect foil, selflessly teasing out moments of stupendous invention. Their take on Dragon’s Den is a highlight but this is a rare show where almost everything works.
Pleasance Dome, 556 6550, until 28 Aug, 10.50pm, £8.50–£9.50 (£7–£8).
