ED2012 Comedy Review: Luke And Harry’s Dot Dot Dot (Luke And Harry)

ED2012 2/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

Luke Davies and Harry Carr appear to think that blurting out a non sequitur then slapping the floor and saying ‘’touchdown!’’ is an adequate substitute for humour. It isn’t. Sketch shows are always hit and miss, but ‘Luke And Harry’s Dot Dot Dot’ has few hits and a lot of misses. There are moments of hope, like the menopausal mother telling her son about ‘’the change’’ and there are chuckles to be found in some of the blacker sketches, but all too often Davies and Carr simply fling some random, theoretically funny, elements together – backscratcher, piles, grandchildren – and hope that laughter will follow without bothering with such niceties as punchlines or point. I like to shag cabbages! Touchdown!

Just The Tonic at The Caves, 2 – 26 Aug (not 14), 2.00pm.
