Very funny slapstick humor
13 January 2018
Fast based play with a bit of singing and dancing. In order to get most of the jokes, you got to be proficient in English. Reminded me a bit about Monthy Python and Benny Hill comedy. Was very funny.

My daughter and I both thought the show was hilarious. It was fast paced with lots of laughs and we loved it. Probably one of the best shows that I've seen up London

Like a cross between Police Squad and Monty Python, A Comedy About A Bank Robbery was funny from start to finish. The biggest surprise was how inventive and clever some of the scenes were. Acting was excellent throughout. Loved it.

Really enjoyed this afternoon out. The cast were great. The play was funny and had a good story line. I actually enjoyed it so much I went home and booked extra tickets for my daughters to see it the following month.

Another excellent comedy by the mischief group
27 October 2016
Loved this comedy - added bonus was the singing - great voices - especially from the former Tinker bell From Peter Pan the Play that went wrong - outstanding voice. Its clever, extremely funny and well executed - go and see it. There's some scenes reminiscent of one man 2 guvnors - the scene where the long standing employee regains and loses his memory is superbly done. We went with our daughter who has also seen the other two plays and we loved this just as much. Its a great cast, great writing and acting. Can't wait for the next new production from this group.

Not as funny as previous shows
18 April 2016
You can't fault this company's energy and enthusiasm, but we didn't find this play as funny as 'The Play that Goes Wrong' and 'Peter Pan'. The humour in this one is more based on puns, which were a bit tedious e.g. the play on words of the bank manager, Robin Threeboys. The staging was very clever in the second half where they are on wires, but overall, the humour was quite dark and macabre, and didn't have us in stitches as we were with the first 2 plays. Good to try something different, I suppose, but it wasn't what we were expecting.
