Show type: Edinburgh Fringe 2001
The Saddam Brothers
Character comedy. Mark Brailsford and Mark Katz are the clones of Saddam Hussein, on a mission to show the friendly face of Iraq to the People of the Little Satan
The blurb for this show compared to The Saddam Brothers to Morecambe and Wise - and it wasn't kidding. This was copied straight from the Eric And Ernie textbook, even down to the bed-sharing routine.
And the targets were far from topical: Tom & Nicole, Princess Di as Bridget Jones, The Proclaimers and so on.
At one point a 'special guest' was introduced Tilly Gregory, who broke up the sketches with a funny enough stand-up routine, but there was a distinct air of confusion as to why she was there.
Excellent, funny, engaging and a damn good afternon's laugh
