Frank and Dean Stalin received a delightful 4 star review from The Wee Review last week, for their new show “Putting On The Blitz” currently running until the 26th August at The Voodoo Rooms, Edinburgh, as part of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
“Well-pitched bad taste character comedy…
Putting On The Blitz feels like a show from another era, and not just because its cast of characters are mainly long dead dictators-cum-crooners. For one, it feels cheekily liberated from the bounds of good taste. It also extracts its laughs in old school ways, employing all the methods the music hall boys and TV gameshow hosts did to reel in its audience. It isn’t afraid to drop in a dad gag or groansome pun if it’s tasteless and funny, which it frequently is.
Frank Sanazi, our host for the evening, is a 50/50 hybrid of Ol’ Blue Eyes and Ol’ Fuhrer Face, and has something of the charisma of both. One second he’ll be charming us with some very passable crooning, then there’ll be a barrage of “Jawohl!”s and we’ll be staring into the mad eyes and postage stamp facial fuzz of history’s least loved. He’s a gift of a comedy character, being able to call on the traits and habits of both his progenitors in pursuit of laughs.”
