Croft and Pearce’s sketch show was, I have to say, average. Their first sketch was of two Olympic runners tweeting each other fighting talk, the punchline being one of them losing and uploading a sad face. It pretty much set the tone of funny for the rest of the show. The sketches were not particularly creative but still funny in places.
What should be noted about the show is that almost all of the characters they play are female. Whether this was simply because the girls are better at playing women, or they were making a point, it was really nice to have an hour away from the male-dominant world of comedy. A favourite of mine was a Geordie Brownie group, in which the loutish Brown Owl teaches the girls mortal combat, only to knock little Emily out and have to hide it from her mother. Hilarious. I was also charmed by their final farewell to the audience: written placards of thanks and goodbyes.
The two girls obviously have a good onstage chemistry and sweet personalities but unfortunately don’t go all the way. Whilst they did do it like ladies, they didn’t really do it funnily enough.
