Tis Pity She's Anonymous

Note: This review is from 2001

Review by Steve Bennett

This stunning duo filled the audience with confidence the moment they came on stage, instantly proving themselves to be excellent singers whose personalities filled the stage.

Comedy-wise, the material was well written and topical, and routines about Britney and Christina were sharply observed, if a tad obvious.

They clearly gelled as a double act and artfully sailed through sketches with ease, with a soap opera skit in particular reducing the audience to helpless hysterics.

If there was one gripe, it was that this talented twosome relied on their Irish backgrounds for much of their material, and the 'feck, bejassus' attitude did become a little laboured.

But that doesn't detract from the fact that these two very funny women are going places. It is a breath of fresh air to see well-written material performed by intelligent women.
