The Comedy About A Bank Robbery

Mischief Theatre’s smash-and-grab hit The Comedy About A Bank Robbery is a fast, fabulous comedy caper and the funniest show in the West End!

Summer 1958. Minneapolis City Bank has been entrusted with a priceless diamond. An escaped convict is dead set on pocketing the gem with the help of his screwball sidekick, trickster girlfriend… and the maintenance man. With mistaken identities, love triangles and hidden agendas, even the most reputable can’t be trusted. In a town where everyone’s a crook, who will end up bagging the jewel?

Book now for this dynamite comedy. It would be criminal to miss it!

★★★★★ ‘This is the funniest show in the West End’ The Telegraph

★★★★★ ‘A fast and fabulous comedy caper is a joyful night out’ The Times

    You can't not laugh the whole way through. Easily breaks away a bad few weeks :)

  • Very funny slapstick humor

    13 January 2018

    Fast based play with a bit of singing and dancing. In order to get most of the jokes, you got to be proficient in English. Reminded me a bit about Monthy Python and Benny Hill comedy. Was very funny.
