Think of the school dances you went to, and then imagine one you wish you were at. Michelle Brasier and Laura Frew are throwing a Double Denim themed kids party for adults, and you’re going to have a bloody good time.
Brasier and Frew are deft comics with a great dynamic and rock solid timing. They display incredibly strong improv skills without ever missing a beat, and the feminist quips show us that behind all the silliness they are whip smart too.
There is a gorgeous naivety to Double Denim that the audience gets swept up in. Here we are at the Blue Light Disco of our dreams, and before we know it we’re all singing along in unison. Somehow we all seem to remember the words to the same songs, and the joy of this radiates from the audience back to the performers.
A few of the jokes feel a touch laboured compared to others, but this is still a fun show. Brasier and Frew are a double act we’ll see plenty more of and for years to come.
