Three Weeks, the festival newspaper, has given us a four star review.

It would be difficult for anyone not to warm to the ‘Big Day Out’ trio. The beginning sequence, involving flying having foam, a bit of a dance and a man playing jazz on a kettle immediately engages the audience. The sketches are tightly written and all three performers skilfully deliver their characters and ideas with clarity, wit and appropriate eccentricity. There is a radio show with a method actor pirate, a man addicted to dog milk, and a wonderful song about the British institution that is Tim Henman. Special mention to the barbershop versions of Knight Rider and Grange Hill. Not all the material is successful, but the charm of the trio and their incessant playfulness ensures a faithful following.Three Weeks 17/8/05
