ED2012 Comedy Review: Frimston And Rowett – Huge Mistake (Taken For Granted Productions)

By | Published on Saturday 18 August 2012

A disclaimer is necessary for this review: the version of this show did not, in fact, star Rob Frimston – who was ill – and it was hampered severely by a venue-wide powercut. Yet, a show that can brighten a room in even the most unfavourable of circumstances proves itself as one to watch. Many of the sketches contained within ‘Frimston and Rowett: Huge Mistake’ were witty, often pun-based and extremely fast-moving; all were laugh-out-loud funny. Their strongest moments were when the sketches were based on wordplay (palindromes, puns) but these were often so clever that their other recurring themes seem weak beside them. Nonetheless, this is excellent, but has the potential to be exceptional.

Just The Tonic at The Caves, Aug 2-26 (not 14), 6.15pm.
