Laugh out loud funny, quick witted, slapstick comedy, with clever humour that keeps you on your toes.
Read more about The Comedy About A Bank Robbery, showing at the Bristol Hippodrome, reviewed by Mark and Michelle Smith.
It won’t take you long to settle into the belly laughs that this multi-award winning West End smash hit provides from start to finish.
Set in the summer of 1958 the show tells the story of an escaped convict’s attempt to rob a bank of a priceless diamond in its custody.
With characters including a bank manager called ‘Robin Freeboys’ and another cast member who goes by ‘Everyone Else’ this is tongue in cheek humour at its best.
Mark and Michelle Smith reviewed the show for The Interchange, Mark said: “The storyline was easy to follow, but it was quick paced, so you had to pay attention as the jokes came thick and fast.
“It was an amazingly funny show, I don’t think there was a gap of a few minutes without the crowd bursting into laughter.”
With acting, singing and show-stopper stunts the performers had aerobatic skills that couldn’t fail to impress.
Mark said: “The cast were so athletic, climbing up and down ropes, jumping, spinning and somersaulting across the stage. The staging was just brilliant. There were saw jaw-dropping moves.”
Mischief Theatre last came to the Bristol Hippodrome to perform The Play That Goes Wrong and as a follow up this show did more than impress. However, Mark felt there was even room to stage a sequel.
“It left you wanting more, I’d go back and watch The Comedy About A Bank Robbery 2,” he said.
And Michelle added: “It was laugh out loud funny, quick witted, slapstick comedy, with clever humour that keeps you on your toes. A fantastic evening.”
