ED2012 Comedy Review: The Three Half Pints

By | Published on Monday 6 August 2012

Everything goes wrong in the eccentrically posh world of The Three Half Pints! Gleefully silly and full of surprises, three brothers – Ernie, Derrick and Dick – present a range of sharply witty and ‘’weally, weally good’’ sketches. Using gentlemanly banter and embracing the use of shockingly convincing, yet delightfully hilarious, moments of stage combat, The Three Half Pints dazzle with well-executed Monty Python-esque slapstick humour. Richard Frank’s adorably dim portrayal of Dick induces belly-aching laughs and is reminiscent of the dim-witted Frank Spencer from ‘Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em’. This show is sure to captivate you – it is refreshing to see such brilliant and young talent in the Festival.

Laughing Horse @ Edinburgh City Football Club, 2-26 Aug (not 8, 22), 1.05pm.
