 Well Flash in the Can is with us again and treated us to a show of Aaand Now for Something Completely Improvised. These are the people behind Aaand Now For Something Completely Wireless, also an improv masterpiece.  In tonight's show a forgetful old grandfather, prompted by audience members sets the scene for the story to be acted out by these skilled performers. So we had the Story of Boris (whose dark secret was that he had 3 left feet) and The Mashed Banana.

We learned from audience members that it was set in Aberdeen, in the U.K and begins in a library. The cast pulled this all into a dramatic narrative involving Boris the Librarian's plot to translate all of the books in the Aberdeen Library into Scottish as should be right and proper in that place, a childless couple, 7800 babies, Leviticus and quite a lot of mashed banana.  With scene and costume changes too, and a side note from one of the actors, who was born in Aberdeen.

This was all wrapped up in a satisfying and clever conclusion. These stories will be different each night, of course, and the actors all have their own shows as well other Flash in the Can shows so there's a lot of hard work and brains there. 

8.5 (this was the preview, they will get even better) out of 10 super and watching the Radio Prune / Whose Line Is It Anyway Mornington Crescent championship playoffs on the Sid and Nancy Scale.
