Definitely recommended for Friends fans. Brilliant one-man show, and he took it lots of places. There was the…and the…. well, I don’t want to spoil it for you. Just know that you’ll enjoy it. It will put a big grin on your face. 2 chances on its final Saturday and 1 on the final day. Do it! This show may be your Fringe lobster.

My daughter, older teenager and a Friends fan really enjoyed this show. I enjoyed it too. Good use of an hour of your day if you like Friends.

Really great show, excellently performed. I had to go twice! Now I want to see Brendan Murphy lovingly dissect other pop culture phenomena, eg Brendan Murphy in Taken 1-3 - I can already see it in my mind’s eye

Brendan Murphy, as always, brings this show to life. He establishes an immediate connection to the audience with ease, and from that moment on everyone wants him to succeed in navigating the iconic show that is friend. His characterisations of the cast, particularly C. Bing were spot on…….what Brendan needs in the future is a suitable vehicle for his talents and he could go all the way! I have seen Hollywood stars with less talent.

Murphy is a tour de force, leaping back and forth over the famous sofa, changing from Richard Burke to Janice quicker than you can say ‘we were on a break’, and spitting quote after quote with hilarious impressions at lightning speed.
