Two Left Hands - Another Mouthful

This show is a pleasant mix of upper-middle class ‘safe’ humour combined with more crude, but successful, crafty one-liners from this truesome twosome, showing how a fully developed understanding can produce a bubbly, fast-paced and topical sketch show that provides several injections of hilarity.As always with such shows, some sketches have far greater appeal to the audience than others. The left-handed lotharios recognise this and play to their strengths – a particularly convincing combination between Pauline Prescott, looking for a new role in life, and Cherie Blair, who has taken the image rights of Mr T which delightfully conforms to the charismatic conundrum that she is, is built upon throughout the show. Dotted around these sketches are other successful cameos, including soliloquies from poppies, the new face of librarians, and improving the ‘cultural quarter’ of Bradford.The facade is highly viewable, a truly enjoyable afternoon experience, and while the pair could still deviate a little more from some rather ‘same-e’ sketches, they are approaching something of a finished article. Other highly polished skits to look out for include Marie Curie’s auntie and an alternative Owl and the Pussycat scene.

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.
