Excellent, unmissable comedy
25 March 2005 | by (Dublin, Ireland) – See all my reviews

I became aware of Lano & Woodley by accident; trawling through the channels late one night I discovered this bizarre comedy and was hooked from the first second.

The next week, I set up the VCR, taped the show, and... That was it! I never saw it again, until last Monday when my wife gave me the DVD for my birthday.

Lano & Woodley are, in short, comic geniuses. They successfully combine slapstick, pathos, word-play and, well, pretty much every other form of comedy. They do it a lot, and they do it very well.

I'm normally not a fan of physical comedy (Charlie Chaplin and The Three Stooges just leave me cold), but Lano & Woodley have mastered it.

10 out of 10!
