I really enjoyed this, saw it on Saturday and it was sold out. George was a great start to the show and Chris did a fantastic second half. George was so quick with the audience and Chris is very endearing when he talks about his wife!

LOVED this show! Both guys were hilarious, so likeable and are a must see for future Fringes. Great venue and excellent service for ordering drinks.

Both comedians are really funny, George in particular had a great rapport with the room, and I really like Chris's PowerPoint slides of possible Fringe shows - can't wait to see 4:48 Sock-chosis next year! Really nice to see them come on together at the end, looked like they were about to do a duet. Highly recommend. Like the at-seat service for drinks too.

Warm welcome from the very start - great crowd work. George and Chris are both hugely talented, punching above some of the other smaller venue acts we’ve seen during our stay. Ones to definitely watch
