Cardinal Burns present Dean and Murf review

For those in the know, there are lots of in-joke pop-culture references along the way, from Lou Diamond Phillips to a Snow Patrol spoof, but the adventure is entertaining and enjoyable on its own terms, while being probably the most interesting and distinctive of this season's pilots.

Review: Cardinal Burns/Tony Law

Cardinal Burns are an incredible force on stage, wielding their talent for acting and characterisation alongside well-scripted lazy human interaction. Focusing on hypocrisy, power struggles and the complexities of male relationships and sexuality, it's simple sketch comedy at its best.

Cardinal Burns - The Lowry, Salford

The translation for any sketch show from TV to stage can be tricky to achieve successfully. On their TV series, Cardinal & Burns make great use of costumes and locations. The stage version doesn't entirely do away with props (a jacket here, a wig there) and as a result the show is able to move along at a really good pace. The audience are left with no doubt, thanks to good writing and performances, that Cardinal Burns' appeal is not a case of style over substance.
