Peter vs. Chris

Peter n Chris—John Hirsch Mainstage

After beginning this show with a cinematic-like introduction featuring strongly accented music, lights that flash on and off, and the two approaching each other at center stage repeatedly, popular fringe duo Peter and Chris begin their show proper rather casually. They argue about whether they have been performing together for 8 or 10 years, talk about how their creative process, and remind the audience that there are no refunds. Furthermore, they joke that this new show was prepared last weekend, unlike previous shows that required six months of work, and they invite questions from the audience.

Soon this devolves into an argument between the two as to why Peter appears before Chris in their company name, and a competition to see who is best, with scores kept on a whiteboard. They try to one-up each other with increasingly crazy antics, which sometimes include dancing or skits. Eventually they have a big fight and Chris exits, leaving Peter to draft an audience member as a replacement. A reconciliation soon follows, as expected, with them rediscovering that they need one other.

Peter and Chris joke at one point that all their shows from year to year are the same, and I say I would agree, to a degree, especially with their arc of competing with one another, having conflict, breaking up, and then making up. Their earlier joke about this show being created last weekend feels like it might not be too far from the truth as well. They are still funny but their sketches are not as sharp or deep as I remember them being in previous shows.

Peter n Chris—John Hirsch Mainstage

The ultimate bro-mance returns to the fringe! The boys are back with another one of their signature shows. Back with a laugh a minute and some slips to boot, this highly physical dynamic duo have proved once again they have what it takes to deliver one liner after one liner. The show was very silly, but that’s what makes it so charming. Their friendship is so endearing that you end up rooting for these two to succeed no matter what. While the jokes are sometimes crude and there is a lot of swearing, there is definitely something for everyone to laugh at. If you are looking for something new from them, this show is not for you. They even joke about the fact that we all seem to keep coming back, despite nothing changing. If you are like someone like me that doesn’t care and just wants to keep laughing at goofy jokes then this show is for you. Well done as always and I can’t wait to see what ‘new/old’ show you bring back next year.
