Tea and Cake (3 stars)

This article is from 2007.

Afternoon tea with Tiernan Douieb and Lauren Shearing is an entertaining affair. Their well-written sketches are unashamedly unafraid to push the boundaries of taste and almost enough to put the delicate off their Lady Grey. They overcome awkward costume changes by adopting the Simon Brodkin method of disrobing in full view of the audience while the comedy continues and glimpses of their onstage alter egos reveal a murderous intent. Recommended.

Underbelly, 0870 745 3083, until 26 Aug (not 15), 2.50pm, £8–£9 (£7–£8).
