Shirley and Shirley – Late Night Lock In 2** - One4Review
one4review | On 09, Aug 2014
Last year I was persuaded to see these ladies sketch show when one of my team had to drop out and I was just blown away with their performance so was looking forward to more of the same in Fringe 2014.
But oh dear this was by no means of the same vintage as last year’s version. I always think sketch comedy can sometimes be a patchy experience with the odd low spot, but I don’t think I was alone in thinking that this had the occasional high spot and an awful lot of average at best material.
We had the Middleton sisters, really? Still! The Super Mario Brothers game show, drunken girls, geezers doing karaoke, middle class gap year and of course this year’s favourite go to, Tinder.
Shirley and Shirley work hard to try to make it work and their energy could not be faulted, just that in general I felt that stronger, funnier material was required.
