I thought the show was absolutely brilliant, I laughed from start to finish. It exceeded expectations and it is definitely the funniest show in the West End at the moment. I've recommended it to all my friends.

If you like Fawlty Towers and loved One Man, Two Guvnors then this is for you. An evening of ridiculous silliness but very, very funny.

If you like slapstick, wit, have a dry sense of humour, then this play is a must see thrill of non-stop laughter... I laughed so much that my chest hurt after! The actors performed wonderfully - with any comedy, timing and pauses are essential -...More
