Ed Britton (a dead ringer for Christian Bale, by the way), John Leung and Kat Rich put plenty of energy into proceedings to produce a show that's very hard not to like. Together they possess the quick wit and musical chops to make a show like this work. What's a little lacking is polish: jokes and character antics could be delivered with a bit more speed and confidence to bring the kind of momentum required.
At around 40 minutes, the show in no way outstays its welcome, but as the pace flags a couple of times it does feel a little light on. Still, really, what's not to like? You're sure to get a few laughs, can enjoy a drink before or after at the Dirty Secrets bar, and you're out in a nice part of the city, primed to make the rest of your evening a memorable one.
