Anyway, following a sell-out run in 2018, they have a new hour of their dark and waggish songs to parade about the place. Best Music and Variety Act 2018, Chortle Awards. Best Musical Act 2018, Leicester Comedy Festival. 'Musical comedy hasn't been in such safe hands for years' (List). ***** (Sunday Post). ***** (ThreeWeeks). **** (Sunday Times). **** (Telegraph).
