Michelle Braiser & Laura Frew: Double Denim Adventure Show

Like Morecambe and Wise smashed together with the two best Spice Girls (Sporty and Scary), Michelle Brasier and Laura Frew have created a brand-new show that easily puts to rest any worries that their success last year could have been a one-off. They have an immediate chemistry with the audience and the laughs are regular and hearty. Brasier and Frew come across as genuine best pals having a bit of a lark as they attempt to take us all on an adventure cruise. There’s going to be fun in the Banana Lounge and very likely a floor show but we are all wondering what’s happened to Captain Ron and we’re hoping that we don’t end up stranded in a jungle.

You can’t miss this hilarious double act.

There’s a lot of ad-libs, technical problems and occasional randomness but it absolutely feels planned in its own madcap way. Double Denim works as a double act precisely because the two performers on stage are happy to cede the punchline to the other and both take turns as the straight girl and the funny one.

Normally when I’m seeing a show, I try to take prodigious notes so that I can jog my memory when I later sit down to write my review. My notes for this performance literally read ‘What’s happened to Captain Ron?’ and ‘Love, love, love this show’. I was far too distracted by how much fun the Double Denim Adventure Show threw at the audience that I can only assure you that you can’t miss this hilarious double act.

Part safari party. Part murder mystery. All denim. Golden Gibbo nominees Michelle and Laura bring you part two of the Double Denim journey, a celebratory journey from teenage years to avocado days. This is every contiki tour that has ever gone wrong. This is Jumanji meets Absolutely Fabulous. No map, no shame, probably a little bit of The Rock Dwayne Johnson. How many early 00’s bangers can the Golden Gibbo nominees cram into one hour? We’re about to find out. Celebrate the wonderful silly things about all of us. Pack spare knickers, it’s going to be a very cool party. Reviews (Double Denim) “A raucous night out.” ★★★★ The Skinny (UK) “Rockets between absurdity, fun, and sharply-observed set pieces.” Stage Whispers Nominated - Golden Gibbo at Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2017
