Do You Come Here Often? Vaudeville Theatre, London WC2
Wednesday 07 January 1998
The scandal of this year's Edinburgh Festival was why didn't this joyous, rapturously funny show win the Perrier Award? Too theatrical, or so Dame Rumour had it. Hrrrumph. Try telling that to the people who flocked to see what fast became the festival's biggest hit. The night I saw it, the entire audience gave it a standing ovation. I've never seen that happen on the Fringe before. Not bad for a show about two men who discover themselves mysteriously locked in a bathroom. Hamish McColl and Sean Foley (aka The Right Size) have been working together for years now, which accounts for the fluidity and physical grace as they weave in and out of this sublimely silly tale, marrying wit and slapstick in a manner not seen since the heyday of Morecambe and Wise. They have already wowed London with a run at the Lyric Hammersmith. Join them for their West End debut. You won't regret it.
