Hanks and Conran see themselves like pigs in blankets, but they can’t decide who’s the bacon and who’s the sausage. They are typical bickering friends, with standard fat and slag jokes firing back and forward between them. For a time, it’s a tad predictable and they seem to get more out of it than the audience does. However, as things start to head a little off-book, it quickly changes. This pair has impeccable comedy timing and they bounce off each other incredibly well. Their interaction with the audience members coaxed into helping them stage a play is witty and there are some cracking one-liners. Not quite there yet but certainly a pair to keep an eye on.
Just The Tonic at The Caves, 2-26 Aug (not 14), 5.20pm.
