MEN IN COATS

Roar with Laughter 2013: Hammersmith Apollo, London, 2013

Mick Dow and Maddy Sparham are Men in Coats.  The act is imaginative visual buffoonery and I saw them perform at the Roar with Laughter charity benefit concert at the Hammersmith Apollo in London in 2013.

As soon as the manic Parka-wearing comics appeared, they reduced the audience to helpless laughter within seconds, as balloon faces emerge from their furry hoods, and they barely let up for the entire set.  This energetic duo performed slapstick comedy as well as just daft and sometimes dark sketches.  The whole thing was inspired, and they went down a storm.
