The first few minutes are an: eh, what the hell is going on...but it quickly leads into some lovely two handed farce, music and knowledge of Hamlet and Stoppard. A small venue but well worth seeing. The two performers are excellent. I hope they expand to a larger venue in the future.

This was hilarious from start to finish. The nuances of the show capture the audience on a fast paced back and forth journey of Shakespearean dialogue mixed with innovative original dialogue and the strong undertones of Rosencrantz and Guildernstern, all wrapped up with the odd rhetoric of 20th century pop culture references and original songs.

My sides ached by the end of the show and these two performers could have gone another hour with their witty banter and ability to involve the audience from start to finish...!!

The Raymondos are a duo to watch out for, their comedic interactions and swift character changes make for a riotous rollercoaster of laughs and hearty enjoyment. Yes, this is a must see show and may they continue their success at the Fringe Festival and beyond...!!

I’ll be looking for them again at next years Fringe...!!

You need to go see this! One of those shows that are hard to explain in a way that does it any kind of justice. These two are seriously hilarious, and their riff on Rosencrantz & Guildenstern was the perfect way to start my day at the Fringe. Definitely two performers to keep your eye on, so get your tickets now and gain the ability to say "I saw them when..."

Brilliant chemistry between the two actors. So much fun to watch, they deserve to sell out every show

I didn’t quite know what to expect but the interesting ideas alongside energetic and pacy performance was highly enjoyable.

Fast-paced, charming, witty comedy. The performers won the audience over immediately and kept them laughing to the end.

It’s not exactly laugh-out-loud funny and ingeniously entertaining, but Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Plebs has its own charm...
