Girl & Dean – Original Review

Note: This review is from 2008

Review by Steve Bennett

Girl & Dean are an almost defiantly old-school sketch double-act, starting with a skit that could almost have appeared in any undistinguished university revue of the past 30 years, adopting posh voices as they acted out a scene set in Pangbourne Women’s Institute.

Their rigid dialogue is too-clearly scripted, even when they start to talk as ‘themselves’ – speaking like no real person does outside of comedy sketches. But their emotional chill began to thaw as they went on, as a few genuinely funny lines crept into their banter and they became more relaxed. They probably can write quite well, but they need to leave the drama-school performances behind.
