Take A Whiff of . . . Turpentine (1 star)

Surrealist banter


This article is from 2007.

In an age of the supreme surrealist banter of the Mighty Boosh and twisted tales of The League of Gentlemen, the staged interplay between John Canfield and Richard Hutchison seems somewhat tired and awfully tame. The sketch-driven duo is at pains to avoid such comparisons in their presentation of simpler observational antics but their likeable personas are not enough to stop this show from feeling a little flat and falling likewise.

  • 1 star

Surrealist sketch comedy that fails to live up to its influences. 'Part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2007'.
