Colin and Rob – Original Review

Note: This review is from 2002

Review by Steve Bennett

Gleefully unfashionable, Colin and Rob resurrect the timeless bickering double act formula to great effect.

Their contagiously silly set can sometimes seem a little over-staged, but their instinctive comic ability, and resolute determination not to take themselves in the slightest bit seriously easily win through.

This same innate ability overcomes a slightly shaky start, in which they deliberately deliver bad jokes badly, and they soon get the audience on-side and keep them there.

Such stupidity could so easily backfire if not skilfully performed. For example, for most their set, the fat bloke and his strangely-navelled foil are semi-naked save for nipple tassles - a sight that is saved from appearing an embarrassingly desperate bid for zaniness by their underdog likeability.

We're sure to see more of these two - and not just because of their willingness to shed their kit.
