Donned in their adult-sized school uniforms, droll Roger David and his more musically talented half-brother Fletcher Jones opened in an awkward yet weirdly entertaining entrance to their new Adelaide Fringe show Smart Casual: The Older Brother (a.k.a. The Curse of Doug).
The comedy duo reminisce with a hilarious recount on the stories of their childhood. The theme in particular focused on their older brother Doug who acted like somewhat of a bully and tormented Roger and Fletcher growing up.
Complete with musical performances that are equally head-boppingly catchy as they are lyrically hilarious, the half-brothers will be sure to leave a mild enjoyment of a night.
The show however ended with a rather somber and heartwarming note than one of a somewhat typical closing musical showstopper or equivalent, which left audiences in a state of emotional content but not so much comically satisfied.
Smart Casual: The Older Brother (a.k.a. The Curse of Doug) finishes its Adelaide Fringe run in the Rhino Room this year with shows on til the end of the season.
