The show’s name may reference Python, but the Racing Minds team seem to take a studious interest in comedy and popular culture in general, which gives them a wide range of references to play with. This improvised show never loses momentum thanks to the abundant joy and energy from the performers. Their ability to skilfully make light of continuity errors and enjoy moments of failure is as much of a credit to their ingenuity and wit as their impressive ability to jointly construct an entirely believable world out of a few suggestions. They could probably have used the audience more than they did, but they seemed to be enjoying themselves enough up there. A quick-witted, energetic and confident show.
