It was a hugely enjoyable experience which caused laughter of the silly (sometimes groaning) type practically all the way through. The three main performers were very good, especially Toby Sedgwick who was basically cast as the minor player, but his physical acting and facial expressions were excellent, and his harmonica spot whilst attached to five French revolutionaries was gut-achingly funny. The slapstick aspect of the two main performers (Alessi and Keaton) was not as polished, and perhaps reflected the fact they've been doing it so long and the technique had taken over, but this was an advantage as far as comic timing went, which was pinpoint. A lot of their performance relied on the affection we all had for Eric and Ernie and it worked well. The special guest (there is a mystery guest at every performance) was revealed to be Neil Morrisey, who, just like the guests on Morecambe and Wise, was there to feed the comedy of the main act.
Very nice meal before hand, by the way, at Alduomo.
