As soon as I saw that these guys were hitting Edinburgh I knew I had to book. It’s The Raymond and Mr Timpkins Revue: Ham at King Dome @ Pleasance Dome, at 20:30 on Monday 20th. Here’s the blurb: “The legendary terpsichorean twosome make their Edinburgh Fringe debut. If it is true that every story needs plot and narrative, it is fortunate indeed that this has both, which means if you’re looking for a tale, one that includes the story telling devices of plottery and narrativery, then this one could be just for you. There’ll be props and, oh yes, quite a lot of music and then of course there are the sandals, oh those sandals. ‘Absolutely hilarious’ (Viz). ‘Mad, anarchic triumph of stupidity over style’ (Guardian). ‘Spectacularly funny’ (Time Out).
We saw them at a Screaming Blue Murder show several years ago now and the memory of their uniquely hilarious act still lingers. All this and plot and narrative too! Can’t wait. Check back around 9.45pm to see whether it ticked all the boxes. By then the next preview blog should be available to read too.
How many musical moments can you cram into an hour of utter literal madness? We never stopped laughing. You have to see it to appreciate it. We’re still laughing about “that’s me in the corner” 🙂 more power to their ridiculous elbows!
