Once in awhile the gods in comedy heaven will align the stars and deliver us a sublime female duo to embrace. Historically we have been lucky to receive the legends French and Saunders, the genius that is Mel and Sue and now behold and brace yourself for The Silky Pair. Finally we can breathe a sigh of relief as Kat and Lorna have set up shop selling their comedy wares and they are definitely here to stay.
This deliriously funny show is The Silky Pair’s genius creation, bringing some much needed satirical sketch comedy to life. They both radiate individual style and each of them bask so comfortably in the limelight and complement each other with the greatest respect. To make this insane duo work Lorna keeps charge while Kat is the clumsy, goofy loose cannon.
Both young ladies take you on a thrilling shopping spree in desperation to sell a sketch or three to keep their little pop up shop alive. Demonstrating original, bonkers and hysterical sketches, these two manage to pull you into their own brand of comedy with great ease, conviction and guarantee fabulous satisfaction.
Staying away from the saturated popular culture parodies, Lorna and Kat take you on a whirlwind of physical, musical and intelligent comedy. They never miss a moment, breath or beat, making sure that every last drop of comedy is squeezed out and devoured by the thirsty audience. The animation that is expressed and contorted is sheer delight and as smooth as ten denier tights.
I couldn’t get enough and I’m already planning my next visit. Don’t let these little gems pass you by, pop in and do what you can to keep the local business alive.
