Anna & Katy

According to Anna and Katy there are two things a comedy double act need: chemistry and jokes.There’s no doubt about their chemistry. Anna and Katy clearly have a deep understanding of their act and they clearly enjoy performing to each other as much as to the audience. When they start bantering with the crowd, they are likeable and funny, which is something that can only come from a position of strength and trust as performers.Their jokes, on the other hand, are more problematic. The sketches are overly long and very hit and miss. There are some great moments (my favourite being a bigoted daytime TV quiz host) but they are diamonds in the rough. It’s reviews like this that remind me of how subjective reviewing comedy can be. Leaving the theatre, I overheard some of the audience comparing Anna and Katy to French and Saunders. Some love French and Saunders, others don’t. I’m of the latter category but if they make you laugh then definitely go along and see the heiresses to the crown.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
