Toulson & Harvey 
2005 Perrier Best Newcomer nominees Toulson & Harvey return to the Edinburgh Fringe with a brand new comedy.
This year, Luke Toulson (2007 Hackney Empire New Act Of The Year Winner) and Stephen Harvey jump from one abnormal scenario to another, bringing a frenetic cavalcade of characters to the stage, and taking every situation to its illogical conclusion. With no blackouts, costume changes or comedy wigs, there is no let-up in a frantic hour of non-stop comedy.
Continuing with their focus on social satire, Toulson & Harvey present a world where a man is prevented from rescuing a plummeting plane due to not having the necessary insurance documentation, while another man will stop at nothing to ensure that things are done ‘in the British way’, whether it’s robbing a post office or mugging a granny.
The show begins with two Spanish brothers, Esteban and Raoul fighting over the same woman, Maria, as played by a bemused a middle-aged man in the front row.
After this, Toulson and Harvey depart from conventional sketch form to instead tell the ridiculous tale of how they met and came to work together.
This is a loose narrative which gives plenty of room for their silly ideas, for instance, Stephen Harvey’s parents meeting in the Boer War. If you can set aside obvious practical issues with this – and many of the other – set-ups, the show is good fun.
They have some very funny premises, the song asking us to ‘spare a thought for the ashtray making man’ who is now struggling to support his family, post-smoking ban, or the ‘knock knock’ joke training sessions in true Rocky style.
But despite this, and the entertaining execution, what this show lacks is belly laughs and big punchlines.
Luke Toulson’s continual efforts to finish the show and move on to his ‘next job’ make the show feel stilted, like this was a 20-minute idea stretched to fill the allotted 50. It is a shame that these two talented performers were let down by the structure of their show. But it still offers an entertaining giggle in the late afternoon.

I watched one of their pre-festival performance down in London back in June. The show was so random in its content and direction that it kept me watching to see what would happen next. The moments of comedy were regular and the effort put in by the comics was clearly evident. The Rocky joke training scene stands out and the audience interation was comfortable. If the show was transfered to TV then it would be an editor's nightmare but on stage it was very clever and well performed as they neither relied on props or change of clothes for cheap gags. Worth going to see just to see something different and original.
