Excellent Comedy
18 November 2005 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

An egg-timer full of eggs. That was the curious image which opened 'After That, This' week after week, and it set the tone for what followed. More whimsical than satirical, the sketches tried to ape 'Python' slightly by dispensing with punchlines.

In one, Bron disrupts a dinner party by pretending to be a cat. In another, Bird finds Bron dying of thirst in the desert and instead of going for help indulges in vacuous upper-class chit-chat. Another, told in the form of opera, has Bron's masseuse fretting that the client she has just made love to ( Fowlds ) might be her long-lost son. My favourite featured Bron as Fanny Cradock, playing at being a T.V. surgeon, with Bird as her inebriated husband Johnny.

The humour was more sophisticated than what else was on offer at the time, and everyone played their parts brilliantly, particularly Bron, whose breathtaking talent for detailed comic characterisations was never used to better effect than here.
