McNeil And Pamphilon (Ditto Productions)
By Simon Thornton | Published on Wednesday 8 August 2012
From cleverly crafted sketches that hark back to the glory days of the Two Ronnies or Morecombe and Wise, to the environmentally themed audience sing-a-long at its climax, this show manages to pack in everything one could possibly wish for from a Fringe act. A delightful mish-mash of stand-up, slick sketches and silly songs, McNeil and Pamphilon’s set is guaranteed to induce big belly laughs. Of course, every great comic double-act is nothing without great chemistry, which is something this pair has in abundance. It is a joy to watch the hilarious consequences as they play off each other’s opposing personas; this duo have proved that they most definitely do have funny bones.
Pleasance Courtyard, 1-27 Aug (not 14), 4.30pm.
