Long, lanky Dan (Daniel Clarkson) and controlling Jefferson (Jeff Turner) explain the concept and argue about the details. We start with Jack and the Beanstalk with Dan's interpretation of a title character being an ornate, lengthy green tube of a sprouting beanstalk. As an audience member you may well be several steps ahead of the actors on the punchline but hey, it feels good to be proved right!
We soon meet Buttons (Rufus Hound) in sparkling, improvising, stand up form who has us all laughing with brilliant and original innuendo and improvisation. So charming is Rufus Hound that he has schooled the whole audience to shout "Fuck the Tories!" on his every entrance.
The first course, Tomato Soup with basil (of course) is served and Manuel's prat falls, crashing into swing doors and antics with nuts and bowls make us grin and grin.
