“Hilarious!”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

Such a fantastic show, some parts had us crying with laughter. Rufus Hound was extremely good, especially at the parts which include some audience participation. The theatre royal Haymarket is quite a small theatre but we had great seats (stalls row P seats 16&17). Would definitely recommend this show.

“Hilarious, and even better than anticipated”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

Don't want to say too much about this, but a friend who had been to London suggested that I go on my next visit. Took two teenagers with me and we all had a great time. First half in particular was wonderful, and I was extremely impressed by the improvisation that appeared to be occurring.

“Excellent romp (as they say in the papers!)”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

We saw this last night and its fab, its like a French farse with its coming and goings. Over the top acting gestures are brilliantly done. Rufus Hound is spectacular and very funny. Lots of ad-lib lines from a true comedian and comedic writing of the script. It is such a small Theatre, wherever you sit you can see and hear whats going on. The whole play was a riot and not to be missed.

“A Great Laugh, especially if you have connections with Brighton”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

I missed getting to see this starring James Corden before he went to Broadway, so I saw the version starring Rufus Hound.
I was not disappointed. This was indeed a laugh a minute (or so) with so many visual gags and some marvellous ad libs with the audience. Being recently relocated from Brighton, where the play is set, it was good to see the pub I regularly frequented. As others have said, the (not so) elderly waiter in the restaurant scene was to die for.

“Slapstick Joy!”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

I don't usually enjoy slapstick but this one is well worth the visit and arm and leg to get good seats!
The old waiter is a must - so funny especially if you're a bit older and can identify!
Definitely not to be missed!!!!
