Dan & Jeff, the comic storytelling duo from Blue Peter, attempt to summarise all six Harry Potter novels in just sixty minutes. All of course, without the legal consent or approval of the publishers.
More parody than précis, this really is a high-octane race through the works of J K Rowling. Characters from the books all come in for a ribbing, and indeed the whole of book three doesn't fair too well.
Gags are clean for the kiddies, but intelligent enough to amuse adults alike. Running themes such as Quidditch, the dragon from book four, and the iffy legal issues of mentioning the actual book names crop out throughout. And plenty of slapstick ensures the little 'uns will be howling with laughter.
Already playing to packed houses, Dan & Jeff have extended their run for an additional week at the main Zoo venue.
