Edinburgh Spotlight Review 2014

The madcap pair of perennial Fringe faves are back this year with a joyous hour of mime, slapstick and chaos in Gamarjobat: Boxer, a show which demonstrates the Japanese duo’s mastery at raising laughter without uttering a single word.

It’s been a while since Japanese physical comedy duo Gamarjobat were in town, but thanks to a recent online profile, as well as us who loved them last time, downstairs at Komedia was packed.

The first half of the show...
