ED2012 Comedy Review: Ian Smith and Tom Toal (PBH’s Free Fringe)

By | Published on Monday 20 August 2012

The joy and the curse of Free Fringe shows has to be enduring the worst ones until you find the best. Ian Smith and Tom Toal are definitely in the latter camp. They are not a double act, but two comedians with separate jokes, the only common factor being a shared flat. Smith is a loud, bearded Yorkshireman with who pulls humour from every aspect of his surroundings, while sipping a carton of Ribena. Toal, Double-T, or The T Dog contrasts with his flatmate, with a laid-back persona and calmly presented jokes. If beautiful, funny men are exactly what you’re after this Fringe (and why wouldn’t they be?), Ian Smith and Tom Toal are the perfect match.

Whistlebinkies, 4-25 Aug, 1.30pm.
