Sometimes, in the mystical genre of comedy, simplicity is the key. Big sets, props and overly elaborate special effects often make a straightforward show far less appealing than it set out to be. Toulson and Harvey have clearly realised this.
The format for their set is pretty straight forward. This is a sketch show, with no fancy backdrops, no props, just two men, some stools and a guitar, with Misters Toulson and Harvey performing a number of interlinked sketches in an attempt to explain why this show will be the last show that they will do together.
Blending sketches and scenarios with songs and a montage scene to the Rocky soundtrack, this fast-paced show comes across very much like a pilot for a potential radio or TV show, with a mixture of material which keeps the audience in stitches, alongside some not-quite-ready jokes.
An enjoyable show by two people who will probably make it quite big in the future.
Toulson and Harvey can be found in the Underbelly at 5.20pm
