The comedy masterminds behind five-star hits The Play That Goes Wrong (Olivier Award for Best New Comedy) and Peter Pan Goes Wrong, return to the West End with their latest lung-bustingly funny creation: The Comedy About A Bank Robbery.

Welcome to Minneapolis, 1958, and the Minneapolis City Bank. Now under the gruff and rather irreverent management of Robin Freeboys, the Bank is entrusted with a priceless diamond by a Hungarian prince. However, when the jewel catches the eye of mean-spirited jailbird Mitch, he teams up with corrupt guard Cooper and Freeboys’ money-hungry daughter Candice, intent on separating the Bank from its most precious deposit.

Mischief Theatre’s new play, written by Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields, is already being called the funniest show in London. Fast-paced and riotously hilarious, The Comedy About A Bank Robbery masterfully unites screw-ball comedy with real theatrical invention, and is guaranteed to have you rolling in the aisles.

Never been to the west end before, I thought that the comedy about a bank robbery was very funny especially the bit from the bedroom scene also the showing with mr threeboys hitting the poor man with the file and off the desk.All the cast played there parts well and it was very enjoyable. So well done everyone associated with this performance.

This has everything, slapstick, play on words, and very clever scenery. Great comic timing. Ideal for all ages. The office scene was inspired - I will say no more, you have to see it for yourself.

Having seen the Play that goes wrong , that was really funny. This was a sad show. I found it unfunny and tiresome. One of the leading parts got replaced I can only think he felt the same way. And then thank -od the fire alarm went Off and we had to evacuate the theatre.
