The show went up late (cast member stuck in traffic), the venue was a bit sticky, but once the show got going, I had the best laugh I’ve had in ages… and my daughter was entertained too.
Tim FitzHigham and Tiernan Douieb make a perfect double act, as the former’s high energy capering is a great counterpoint to the latter’s comic solidity.
The humour is mildly sophisticated at times, and the 2+ age rating somewhat optimistic – I wouldn’t take a child younger than 4, myself – but the physical antics and appearance of a large furry mammal do help to keep smaller audience members engaged.
A fellow audience member tweeted yesterday that he thought these two ought to be on Cbeebies.
If they were, I’d definitely be making an effort to watch.
