Jack Gogarty reviews No Poofs No Piano at The Space on The Mile.
I have been a fan of sketch shows since I was a kid, so to see a variety of modern and very relevant sketches performed on stage in one show is a massive treat. The introduction of each sketch is a great choice, because it gets you in the mind set for what’s to come, and it makes you warm to the three lovable gents who are whisking you through the show. There are some jokes that come out of nowhere and really knock you off your seat with laughter, and some which are close to catchphrases that I know I will be using myself to make my friends laugh.
The relationships on stage, the relaxed attitude, and the ability to improvise based on who was in the audience and what went on during sketches, was second to none, and really needs to be commended. I know how hard this sort of comedy can be, but I strongly recommend people watch this if they can. It’s cheap, it’s easy to find, and it’ll set you up for the rest of the afternoon.
