This absurdist comedy duo take you on a non-linear run from the mob to Italy and back in order to save themselves from digging their own graves.

It's all fairly casual, comfortably rambling, forming an easy hour of musings as the affable Hoo peppers her routine with a whole lot of different seasonings and nuggets. 

Valvo entertains the crowd with well crafted jokes about life, love and champagne.

If you like your comedy on the darker, self depleting side then this gig should be on your comfest itinerary.

The hour roars along at a steady pace. Nothing drags it down and Britton is in top form from go to woah.

For all her cynicism and cutting social commentary, there’s a delightful, sweet quality to Coombs Marr’s humour, which is peppered with cute dad jokes and puns.

It seems surreal that Frank Woodley has been playing the manic irritant to Colin Lane’s frustrated straight man since the mid 1980s – which is probably when half their current audience was born.

It’s hard to watch Geraldine Hickey without (a) laughing and (b) mulling over words like ‘laconic’ and ‘laid-back’.
