Edinburgh Fringe review: Harry & Chris take their comedy-rap-jazz superpowers to the next level

Harry and Chris
Harry and Chris

With pandas becoming pregnant and the world saved thanks to their comedy-rap-jazz superpowers, musical comedy duo Harry and Chris this year set their eyes on their most difficult task yet… saving the universe.

And while it remains to be seen if their efforts will indeed save us all, they left the audience in no doubt that they’ve seen one of the best hours on offer at this year’s Fringe.

The charisma the pair share together is matched by their growing ability to captivate and interact with the audience, impressive given that there are more and more people coming out to see them every year.

Slightly different this year is the addition of Chris’s keyboard and the fact that both he and Harry have taken on the unenviable task of doing solo shows as well this year.

They show no signs of fatigue, though, full of energy from the off. As would be expected of firm friends for life, the duo’s on stage chemistry is excellent and you can tell they’re both having as much of a ball as the audience as they aim to put each other off their stride.

A highlight of the show is the duo recounting their experience on US reality show Bring The Funny, performing in front of star judges Chrissy Teigen, Jeff Foxworthy and Kenan Thompson.

While their talents may not have been fully appreciated across the pond, they had the audience here in stitches with their tales of being aliens abroad.

As with previous shows, there’s plenty of room for a sentimental number. The show reaches a new level of emotion during new dad Chris’s song about his son Luke, with the beauty of it reflecting both his clear talent and clear love for his son.

Poetry champ Harry’s intelligent and intricate wordplay shines throughout, and is even immortalised beautifully on their latest merchandise.

A song about the thing that connects us all – which rivals The Lego Movie 2’s This Song’s Gonna Get Stuck In Your Head for earworm of the year – closes what is the duo’s best show yet.

VERDICT ★★★★★
