Two huge and awful comedic talents, Michael Legge ('often copied, never matched' -Time Out) and Caroline Mabey ('oddball genius' -Chortle), fuse together and become this season’s must-have double-act comedy super-group-team.

Horrifying, stupid, messy, stupid, shambolic, stupid, convoluted nonsense.

'A mirror image of a normal comedy hour… If there's a criticism of this show it's that Legge and Mabey are of such a calibre that Two Stupids is too good – their shit-lists bettering many set-lists on offer' **** (Skinny).

‘A deeply flawed event' (ThreeWeeks).

Fringe Comedy Reviews: Best of nonsense
The final show is in no way absurdist or surreal like the above but a mirror image of a normal comedy hour. There is perhaps a healthy concept here for any artist, with all those ideas that Michael Legge and Caroline Mabey can't fit into their main shows given a run out at the Liquid Rooms. What's more, while Fringe venues tend to sabotage comedians, every disaster here only adds a new dimension. As stalls that are meant to be closing off doorways fly across the stage when accidental entrances are made into the room, it seems like a slamming door stage farce is being plotted in front of us. Countless times Legge dutifully has to escort incomers out to the more popular neighbouring show The Coin Operated Girl. And this is before we get to any of the actual comedy material of Legge's and Mabey's B-sides. Newly invented swear words and piss takes of the faux-embarrassment of reading old diaries (the sort of thing that constitutes much mainstream comedy) stand out. But if there's a criticism of this show it's that Legge and Mabey are of such a calibre that Two Stupids [★★★★☆] is too good – their shit-lists bettering many set-lists on offer. Click Here
