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.

I booked tickets to this show off the back of the play that went wrong which I loved. I was expecting a similar sort of slapstick. But to be honest this show was very slow to start. Laughed a little just before the interval and in the second half the scene in the aircon was good. Overall I felt a bit let down after enjoying their other show so much. I would not recommend.

Very well done, funny and entertaining, very well done with the stage changes interpreted into the story. A lighthearted take on a theatre show.

Amusing parts of comedy, can't help but feel that it's firmly under the wing of "the play that goes wrong", which is a bigger and more amusing affair
