Do you love funny? This one's for you, yet another remarkably silly stage farce from the brilliant Mischief Theatre Company. They wowed audiences with Peter Pan Goes Wrong. They rocked the West End with The Play That Goes Wrong, which won an Olivier. Now there's another, The Comedy About a Bank Robbery, an hilarious romp featuring their unique brand of madcap humour. The show comes from the pen of Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields, all well on their way to becoming living comedy legends. The show was first performed in April 2016 and premièred at the Criterion Theatre. Now it has been extended until autumn 2017 at the same venue, presented by Kenny Wax Ltd and Stage Presence Ltd.
The glittering star of the show is one absolutely enormous diamond, stashed in a bank vault for safety. The only problem is, the city where the bank is based is stuffed full of criminals. And eight of the least competent are determined to nick the gem and sell it for a fortune. On the up-side, the hopeless security guard sleeps on the job, making their task easier. On the down side the thieves are so hopeless that it isn't a case of what could go wrong, more a case of what could possibly go right. The results are splendidly funny, as reported by a host of respected critics. According to The Times it's a "fast and fabulous comedy caper”. Time Out says it's "The best new comedy to open straight onto the West End in decades" The Guardian says it's “Thrillingly inventive and lung-bustingly funny". Whatsonstage says it's "A night of spectacular madness" and the FT the show has audiences, “Laughing all the way to the bank". Fantastic!
