Broadway Baby

“Outrageous, shocking and disgusting that women over a certain age should even attempt to create a comedy sketch show?
Not at all. Encouraged, supported and lauded is what they should be, especially Flip Webster and Maggie Bourgein who have created a winner of a show with great sketches and well thought out characters.
Taking a wry and oft times tongue-in-cheek look at life, this double-act prove that ageing is not a confinement to doddery-ness but a celebration of achievement and things still to come.
Not averse to making themselves look foolish they carry comedy with gusto and have great timing and ooze rapport and confidence.
On a similar par with French and Saunders, this duo could well garner a cult following if they really hone their material. Their can-do attitude and give-it-a-go energy are impressive as is the show itself. Slick sketches from the top with a ‘60s Supreme song to an authentic Italian sexpot chef, the energy doesn’t drop once and the ladies are sharp and on the money.
Flip and Maggie work together beautifully, feeding and bouncing off each other they really have come up with an interesting niche that feels like it could be an endless pot of comedy gold.
A real pleasure to watch, let’s hope they go on with the show and delight further. Go for it ladies!”
