Thünderbards

Thünderbards present a two man sketch show that leaves the audience in stitches. Glenn Moore and Matt Stevens take the audience through a book of ‘short stories’ making for a fast paced and well constructed show. The two work incredibly well together on stage, Steven’s quiet and understated charm complementing Moore’s bold, articulate delivery. It’s unsurprising that Moore was a finalist in both the So You Think You’re Funny? and Chortle Student awards, such is his swift delivery and comfort on-stage.

Much of the humour relies on word play, which is very well written, but this means that as an audience member, paying complete attention to what this duo is saying is absolutely key to the enjoyment of the show. I would not say that either are necessarily the most outstanding visual performers I have had the pleasure of watching, but this is made up for with oodles of wit and intelligent writing.

My favourite sketch was Moore’s advert for ‘Beth Lehem’s Biblical Barn’ - a Jesus Christ Superstore. Here was a perfect example of Thünderbards playing to their strengths. Moore lead the audience through an onslaught of crass yet undeniably clever biblical puns in which punchline after punchline hit the mark.

For fans of word play, sketch comedy, or anyone in search of an hour of guaranteed laughter this show is one to watch. I greatly look forward to seeing the work this comedy duo produce over the coming years.

Reviews by Joe Talbot

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD

Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
