Comedy: mel and sue

The Independent Culture
It's not every comedy act that promises you a free make-over or hairdo if you arrive early for the show. But that's just what Mel and Sue are offering. It is typical of their quirkily different approach. Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins, who met at Cambridge a decade ago, have made a name with their off-beat and irreverent Channel 4 chat shows, Light Lunch and Late Lunch. Now, after a gap of several years, they are returning to live comedy with a sketch show entitled "Back to Our Roots". Health and beauty regimes apparently feature heavily.

Their national tour opens at Brighton Komedia (01273 647100) Tue to Thur; Waterman's Arts Centre, Brentford (0181-568 1176) 8 Apr; South Holland Park, Spalding (01775 725031) 9 Apr.
