Jonny Sweet and Joe Thomas are breaking new comedy turf over at The Underbelly, with their satirical view of the future, called simply The Future.
This is a new kind of comedy where the destination isn't nearly as important as the journey. Set against a vaguely corporate background, Jonny and Joe present a series of absurd scenes which allow their complex characters to explore increasingly bizarre situations.
The duo share a rare symbiosis, weaving their dialogue between each other with slick, polished charm. There's a deliberate nervous fallibility in their delivery, somewhat akin to Ricky Gervais, but the material is much fresher.
Although they flip characters throughout, Jonny seems strongest playing the patsy - his keen facial contortions well suited to the role. Joe's good looks and natural charisma seem ideal for the straight-man in the act, although this is not to belittle his clear comedic talent. Both these lads know the importance of timing.
I look forward to seeing this pair again. Surely offers from BBC 3 won't be far off?
