No Pants Thursday, so called because they have substituted their trousers for comedy [sic] underpants, provide an hour of funny and imaginative material. The sketches manage to keep the overall story in motion whilst also working very well as individual pieces, making for an engaging experience. Although the writing is strong, the performance does have the vibe of a few sixth-formers messing about in the common room (cf. trouserlessness), so perhaps best avoided if you’re easily irritated. If you have thicker skin or are simply a big fan of skinny legs and silly voices, then this is certainly worth taking the time to see, with a particular highlight being the parody of 1990s US sitcoms ‘Take My Wife’.
Just The Tonic At The Caves, 3-26 Aug (not 14), 9.00pm.
