The Stevenson Experience - 2341

The Stevenson Experience
Apr 1st 2013 | Oliver Hamm
Identical twins Ben and James Stevenson have honed a slick, tight show, comprised of very witty songs, with killer one liners throughout.  They will inspire all too obvious comparisons to Flight of the Conchords, but survive the comparison admirably well.  They have found their own style, and manage to plumb all the clichéd notions that us non-twins have about the lives of identical twins for big laughs. Awkward sexual encounters, kitchen-dominating mothers, James Blunt, and the relative merits of singledom vs couplehood, all provide rich source material for some very well crafted comic lyrics.  The rather slender premise on which the show is structured is the idea that Ben and James are tallying up the pros and cons of pursuing a career in comedy.  Predictably, the cons took an early lead. If I could offer one more to the pro list, it would be that the Stevenson boys are very, very funny.
