Kahn Have your say here: I found the characters hilarious and so did my children, yes some of the humour was intened for adults and went above my childrens heads, no different from the simpsons. Around the Pond in 80 Days. Banana Right, the play was good. A s Radio Christmas Carol. Although sometimes, off-putting, singing was aided by people singing off-stage, but this just added to the volume of that on stage.
