32

These two gals combined acrobatics, a goofy sense of humour, and the odd spinning plate to tell the semi-autobiographical story of their creative arts journey.

I noticed a nice similarity between Shebang and French & Saunders (a potential influence, maybe?), who I am big fan of. So, for me it felt like a nice reminder of the past, mirrored in the present, which in turn, worked rather well with the nature of this show, looking back on Shebang's journey so far. The pair told their arts story in a fun, comedic and stylish way, and there were more touching personal moments in there too.

There was a fresh twist to the show, with the pair's offbeat sense of humour delivered via aerobatic tricks and goofy jokes. There were some moments that didn't feel so tight, some parts were so over-the-top that they felt obvious, and others didn't seem to fit with the very particular comedic style of the show. But it was overall very entertaining, and Becky Moult and Maisie Whitehead are energetic performers.

If you like your shows to come with a side of swinging ladies, Spanish cats, and loopy humour, then this is for you. Those who've experienced the pains of the 'creative industries' will surely laugh the hardest. Or cry. The job centre isn't too fun.
