John and Kevin's One Man Show
Show type: Edinburgh Fringe 2001
This show has not yet got a description.
Although these clearly talented actors have written a couple of good scenes - namely the opening sketch and Graham's Board Game - they seem all too willing to wing it, which proves very frustrating.
An audience already distracted by a box of chocolates being passed round (the reward from an earlier game of paper, scissors, stone) are also subjected to endless references to their sponsors and other acts at the fringe.
It all gives the impression that they were not taking the show all that seriously.
And while that's all well and good for a front-room parlour game, it certainly doesn't bode well for being taken seriously as grown up comedy.

Absolutely awful. Despite the fact that there is some promise in their approach (the scissor paper stone warm-up[routine) there was absolutely nothing to really hold the audience's interest.

That said, I agree that Graham's board game is good.
