Description

Clock's ticking. We're all heading for the grave. Don't panic, character comedians Lola and Jo ('Bloody brilliant' **** (Chortle.co.uk)) will find answers to the big questions before time's up. Is this a low-budget escape room run by a dysfunctional duo? Is this a comedy show jumping on the zeitgeist of escape rooms to grab your attention? Or is this just an excuse for Lola and Jo to lock you in a room for 60 minutes and freak out? 'Pitch-perfect' **** (Fest). 'Masterful' **** (List). 'Duos taking risks' (Guardian). 'Comedy duos you need to see' (Independent).

The Wee Review (3/5 stars) 24 days ago

As hinted in the title, Escape, this is no ordinary standup show. Instead, we’re trapped in an escape room with Lola Stephenson and Jo Griffin – only they’re not Lola and Jo, they’re Lesley and Jackie, very eager escape-room hosts who are tasked with helping us find Lola and Jo....

The Scotsman (3/5 stars) 39 days ago

With the clanging shut of their shipping container venue, Lola Stephenson and Jo Griffin make the perhaps justifiable assertion that sketch comedy is currently so unfashionable, it's been eclipsed by the vogue for escape rooms. ...
