    The Comeback tickets

    A hilarious new backstage farce

    Comedy duo The Pin bring backstage rivalry and industry ambition to the West End this Summer with hilarious new show The Comeback. The joyfully silly farce, complete with special guests at each performance, opens at the Noel Coward Theatre.

    When up-and-coming comics Ben and Alex are booked to open for an older double act’s comeback tour, they’re not exactly thrilled by half-empty audiences in regional seaside towns. But after rumours fly about a Hollywood producer attending the show, a cutthroat battle for stardom begins, and chaos reigns both on and off the stage.

    The Comeback is Ben Ashenden and Alex Owen’s (BBC Radio 4’s The Pin) debut play, with the duo starring as young comedians Ben and Alex. They will be joined at each performance by a special guest as the Hollywood producer, with previous cameos including Joanna Lumley, Graham Norton and Danny Dyer.

    Combining classic charm and slapstick reminiscent of Noises Off and The Play That Goes Wrong, don’t miss out on The Comeback tickets when it opens for a limited season in July.

    I liked the way the show developed from a standard (but very funny) comedy routine into a madcap farce. I saw it on the first night and it seemed to go exceptionally smoothly, particularly with all the quick character changes and use of props. Ben and Alex were outstanding - performing as comedians, actors and in an intricate farce, with no interval for more than an hour and a half. *spoiler alert* Simon Bird was the surprise guest and did a great job as the bewildered and put upon “volunteer” on stage. He didn’t get the applause he deserved on coming on stage as I think the audience were too flabbergasted to react. In all a real laugh out loud, fun night out.

    It was a very energetic funny show about a duo trying to make it big in the comedy sketch show scene. It was a 2 man show, both actors were great in their comedic timing and energy on stage. There were times that felt a little slow, in the more serious moments, but this really picks up in the second act with the addition of a celeb guest, which is a nice change up in the show. An easy and fun watch.
