Modern pop culture and the Wild West collide in this sketch comedy show.

On Sunday night’s performance, Peter Carlone and Chris Wilson had the audience in stitches. In a show like this you can’t miss a beat, and they are both in tune with one another and know how to keep the quick pace of the show going. Witty, sly and full of surprises, “Kinda OK Corral” delivers on all fronts.

Peter n’ Chris and the Kinda OK Corral is a send up of the western genre in the style only Peter n’ Chris can do. The story revolves around Peter Earp and Texas Chris, as they navigate the rules of the Wild West and their new and strained friendship in order to win back Peter Earp’s farm.

The show is pure fun, and isn’t afraid to poke fun at itself. Sometimes they decide to switch characters; as when Chris decides to take over the role of Toffee, the ‘bad guy in the play’. Trying to imitate him, Chris asks “What kind of accent are you doing?” to be answered by Peter; “Uhh.. Frank Underwood from House of Cards”.

The scene in which they create a multi-person bar room brawl using mime and sound effects is brilliant.

If you’re looking for a show filled with laughs then you’ve come to the right place. Fast-paced, and with a wink at the audience; you better hang on to your horses; it’s going to be a hilarious ride!
