ED2012 Music Review: Flanders And Swann (Tim FitzHigham and Pleasance with Jeremy Meadows)

ED2012 4/5 Reviews ED2012 Music Reviews

Tim FitzHigham and Duncan Walsh-Atkins have, once again, reprised their roles as legendary comic duo, Flanders and Swann. FitzHigham almost becomes Michael Flanders, from his classic mannerisms to his unique comic timing, providing a fitting tribute to the man who would have turned 90 this year. New life is breathed into old classics, with satirical lyrics involving figures such as Bob Diamond, without ever veering from the very proper Flanders and Swann style. If you’re familiar with the duo then rollicking renditions of favourites such as ‘The Hippopotamus Song’ will have you singing to the rafters. If you’ve never heard of them, it isn’t too late to appreciate their hilarious songs and acerbic wit, thanks to this sparkling show.

Pleasance Courtyard, 1-26 Aug (not 15), 2.30pm.
