“Excellent – cracking gags” Metro
Bryan & Krystal adopt the persona of depressed, desperate, down-on-their-luck comedians, browbeaten by the disappointments the world relentlessly heaps upon them. It may sound depressing but in fact its hilarious! The often cheesy gags are all upbeat and sold with trademark pizzazz. The songs, likewise, are a subtle and contradictory mix of the cheerful and the cheerless, which are great, if stupid fun. They have a laugh per minute rate that amongst the highest in the entire comedy business and are sure to a smile on anyone’s face.
