The nation's favourite female comedy double act appearing in a hut near the Pleasance at quarter to five

Two Left Hands, Pleasance

A sketch show based around a run down seaside town is not the most promising concept but Charlotte Hudson and Leila Hackett manage to inject enough energy into it to ensure the hour passes by amiably enough.
Their range of performances cannot be criticised but the writing quality varies wildly over the various sketches. There’s an excellent sketch between a mother and a daughter that has genuine pathos but there’s also a series of awful sketches centred on two lads’ attempts to pull girls by appearing sophisticated, but not too sophisticated, that are unfocussed and dull. A bigger problem than the overall writing standards, however, is the complete lack of punchlines, vital for blackout sketches to feel satisfactory.
The whole is saved, however, by a closing section dedicated to the reunion of Elaine Paige and Barbara Dickson that betrays a great fondness below the mickey-taking (plus bonus points for including the none-more-80s “ooh, Gary Davies” Radio 1 jingle).

NTW : The “funny woman” spectrum runs a long way from Victoria Wood to Su Pollard – there are too many moments from the “I wanna be a yellow coat” end of the scale.

JTD : Is it worth sitting through the poorer sections to have Charlotte Hudson almost strip in front of you? Shamefully, the answer is yes.

I'm kind of obsessed with chia seeds, but believe it or not, I've in no way tried baking
with them. And lemon as well! Tastiness!I critically contemplated dropping from college rather than finishing my thesis.

I completed my thesis & now I never use my master's degree for anything. So yeah, I am with you on that. Sometimes sticking things out is not the best way to go.
