ED2012 Comedy Review: The Tim And Pat Show (Tim Shishodia and Pat Cahill / PBH’s Free Fringe)

ED2012 4/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

Tim and Pat begin their show with the perfect ending; an encore and rapturous applause. The problem is, however, you can’t just convince an audience they’ve seen an amazing show, which is actually just as well, because then they’d miss out on this little gem. Vacillating between the whimsical and the absurd with a pinch of sarcasm thrown into the mix, it’s hard at times to decide whether the show is meant to be one great big spoof or if this is actually just reality for these two comedians. Either way, it only serves to add to the overall charm. They will leave you constantly guessing yet constantly entertained. That is until you get to the end. Or is it the beginning?

The Cabaret Voltaire, 5-25 August, 5.00pm.
