Evers, Booth and [NAME]

Evers, Booth and [NAME] courageously stage their 2019 multimedia sketch show. Despite the unfortunate disappearance of their third member, Evers and Booth must fulfil their contractual obligations to Eastern European sponsor Dank! (3-in-1 carpet cleaner, antifreeze and feminine moistwipe).

Among those helping them are: unelectronic Amish house band Bounty of Beards; hulahooping dominatrix Barbara; and Yorkshire-based Yankophile T-Bone.

Not forgetting Katerina, the miserable face of Dank!

Bounty of Beards: Merkin 9 to 5

Finely-written sketches with lo-fi elements and double entendres galore

You can tell from their title that this troupe like a bit of wordplay, though sadly there's no tribute to Dolly Parton in here. What is here, though, is a bunch of finely written sketches.

The opening scene sets out their love of pun with as many piscine double entendres as you can possibly think of when the Plenty of Fish dating site is mistaken by a fish enthusiast for a fish suppliers and where 'crabs ruining your fishnets' could take on a whole new meaning. The follow-up using Match.com is equally as well-penned and stuffed with naughty inferences.

To allow for costume changes there are video interludes also starring fourth member Fen, who is riddled with stage fright after an incident with someone's leg. But here on screen, aside from her story and the group's attempts at tempting her back on stage, are a range of adverts such as the incongruously hilarious one featuring Alan Bennett crossed with a jihadi.

Bounty of Beards prove masters of the most unlikely combinations as the highlight here is the eponymously titled Amish band playing (non)electronic music complete with dodgy facial hair and a wooden xylophone. Kraftwerk's 'The Model' never sound-ed so lo-fi.
