ED2012 Comedy Review: Kieran And Joe – Friends Of Steel (Kieran And Joe)

ED2012 4/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

Meet Kieran And Joe, best friends for life who want to share the secret of their success in this sketch-show-with-a-twist. First and foremost what is brilliant to see, as with all great double-acts, is this duo’s on-stage chemistry, which they have in abundance; they clearly really are friends of steel. The show itself is an hour of twisted delights, as the funny pair take the audience through the six golden rules of friendship, each accompanied by a hilarious sketch. So far they do sound like something from children’s telly. However it’s the way they effortlessly and unassumingly touch the surface of such taboo subjects as incest and euthanasia that makes the show so utterly hilarious.

Pleasance Courtyard, 2-27 Aug, 3.15pm.
