Comedy Preview: Pappys & LadyGarden @ New Red Lion

allbusiness.jpg The New Red Lion Theatre hosts a comedy mash-up laugh-a-thon this weekend as Fringe darlings Pappy's take on fellow sketch troupe, the un-Google-able LadyGarden.

The two-hour double header consists of Pappy's All Business crammed into LadyGarden's Top Secret Gig and recast as Top Secret Business; if the sketches promise to be as clever as the amalgamated title, we are sold. But then we are easily pleased.

Not that we need to be - Pappy's (Matthew Crosby, Ben Clark and Tom Parry to their mums) are following up a triumphant fifth year in Edinburgh and gearing up to take their All Business show on the road. The six LadyGarden ladies are tipped as a top-five-in-the-country sketch company following their third year making sides ache north of the border.

The two combined promise a pedigree weekend residency. We could make a joke about it being business and pleasure, but will refrain.
