The Comedy About A Bank Robbery Critics & Reviews
***** ‘This is the funniest show in the West End’ The Telegraph
***** ‘A fast and fabulous comedy caper is a joyful night out’ The Times
''The Comedy About A Bank Robbery' is the latest play by the bogglingly prolific and talented team behind 'The Play That Goes Wrong' and it's their best and funniest work yet. A genre pastiche, screwball comedy and classic farce that's as clean and clear as it's brassy branding, it spins with a manic energy from two Ronnies-esque wordplay through surreal set-pieces to slapstick stunts prepped to bring the house down' TIME OUT, LONDON
'It's a show that will have you on the edge of your seat: you'll be rocked by laughter, then held in suspense as they pull off another nail-biting effect' THE STAGE
