AWARD-winning sketch comedy duo McNeil and Pamphilon return to the Madcap Theatre this Saturday, with a special Edinburgh preview for those of you able to make it Wolverton side.
The show, Which One Are You? has been developed during their favourable London residence, with critics praising their ‘outstanding comic abilities’ and ‘glorious surrealist fancies.’
Former new city boy Steve McNeill is one half of the smile breakers.
Joining the brothers in funny arms, above, will be supporting troupe Delete The Banjax, below, who will make their fourth Fringe Festival appearance in 2011.
They present the show Pigs and Ponies,. although in truth there will be no oinkers of neigh-bringers on the billing for the bash.
You will get fast-paced sketches, surreal characters, animated capers and jolly songs though.
And those of you who have caught them at work before will know that Delete The Banjax are charmingly chaotic in their delivery.
Newbies to their style will catch the driftat the weekend.
‘Daft, deft and hugely inventive’, is what The Independent reckon.
Madcap will welcome you inside from 7pm on Saturday, ready for the show which begins half an hour later.
Tickets are on sale at £10, £8 for concessions.

STANTONBURY Campus will host RARE Productions tonight and through to Saturday, with their delivery of the classic musical Annie.
We find it hard to believe that you don’t already know the story, but readers from the planet zog who are visiting these parts on holiday mighn’t be so clued up.
With that in mind, here is the jist.
Little lass Annie escapes from her orphanage in an attempt to find her real parents...and she has plenty of adventures on the way, including ups and downs.
Essentially though, by the time the curtain falls on the show, things have worked out just fine for our star.
Song wise, if you go expecting to hear It’s A Hard Knock Life and Tomorrow, you’ll not be disappointed.
Tickets are £12 and £10. Performances are at 7.30pm nightly, with an additional matinee at 2.30pm on Saturday.
