Hilarious and no messin’.

A pacy, energetic performance of engaging material liberally flecked with wry, savvy lines… It makes for a triumphant package.
Steve Bennett, Chortle

Charlie George and Jennie Falconer make you want to put them in your pocket and take them away with you. They are as warm and gooey as a treacle tart, but they will make you laugh like a hyena!
