Men In Coats!

I'd forgotten all about these guys until earlier today, when I was searching YouTube for something completely different and this clip came up as a possible answer.

Mick Dow and Maddy Sparham are 'Men in Coats' and I bumped into one of their shows a few years back at the Edinburgh festival, and was left with tears in my eyes and a very painful stomach! Their visual humour is inspired by Tommy Cooper, Jacques Tati and Loony Toons cartoons. This video of them is a treat, and is jam packed with clever visual gags. Be sure to see it through to the end though, as it just gets better and better!

Funny stuff indeed.

One of those acts that make you laugh whilst all the time wondering how did they do that.
