Superb American physical comedy duo the Pajama Men transfer their latest Edinburgh Fringe hit – Just the Two of Each of Us – to the West End for a six-week run at the Arts Theatre. Made up of Mark Chavez and Shenoah Allen, the two PJ Men play every single role in their nonsensical adventure-story shows, seemlessly moving from one character to another. It's a superbly witty show, full of big laughs and oddball scenarios. Well worth the West End ticket price.

Shenoah Allen and Mark Chavez, comics from New Mexico, America, have once again hit the West End as the Pajama Men starring in 'Just the Two of Each of Us'. This review-shattering, highly entertaining performance is worth a look-in if you fancy being laughed-out for the next week or so or blown of your seat with the expertly written and twistingly hilarious content. Debuting at the Edinburgh Fringe and continuing in Australia and London this play has already impressed critics. With 'just the two of them' on stage, excluding a musician, who contributes to the dramatic nature of the comedy, we are, right from the start, exposed to the light-hearted, rarely crude, but utterly breath-taking comic sketches that the two talented actors have in store for us. This play, or series of sketches, culminates rapidly in the final ten minutes stringing together all the sketches already performed into a cathartic and side-splitting climax of laughter. Their complete absurdity and responses to each other are ingenious and the fluency and togetherness throughout boasts their natural talent as a duo. The plot, which plays on stereotypes and awkward situations, is, in itself, a notable piece of work but their creation and instantaneous, snap-of-the-fingers alteration of characters is something to behold. Their name gives little away, however, their dress-code certainly mimics their style of humour; nonsensical chaos. The use of physical theatre on stage, mime and sound effects undeniably adds to their performance and Pajama Men is undoubtedly one of the best comedies the West End has ever seen. The duo will be performing their show at the Arts Theatre, near Covent Garden, until the 23rd of November and I strongly recommend grabbing a ticket to this 70-minute burst of genius.
One of the funniest shows I've seen in years and years. I actually laughed so much at certain moments that it hurt. Loved it!
