When someone steals your girlfriend

When well brought up, sensitive McGhie’s girlfriend is pinched by a predatory Aussie diving instructor, he confesses he’d rather stay indoors doing a sudoku. Goldsmith’s romantic brainwave is stage-managing a situation where his girlfriend walks in on him wanking over her photo. Although the overly studenty material often lacks bite, both deliveries are slick, charming and confident. Promising, but not trailblazing. (Claire Sawers)

Stand-up double-header that occasionally lacks bite but whose delivery is slick, charming and confident nonetheless. 'Part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2007'.
