Croft & Pearce Are Not Themselves (Croft & Pearce)
By Oliver Jaques | Published on Tuesday 23 August 2016
An hour-long slice of modern Britain, created by two funny performers. With their material featuring a range of subjects, from WI teapot collecting women to a children’s dream-crushing Brown Owl, Hannah Croft and Fiona Pearce deliver lots of well thought out sketches, all of which link with and cross over one another. In the first few scenes they create worlds easily and effortlessly using mime, so when they start to use costumes and props in later sketches it’s a little disappointing. However, their tight script and great characterisation makes up for this, with most of the laughs coming from relatable characters. They could do with a few more punchlines, but overall this is an enjoyable hour from a talented duo.
