The publicity for New Art Club’s new show makes a comparison to Morecambe and Wise. But Tom Roden and Pete Shenton seem almost uneasy with the accolade.

“We’ve always resisted having the traditional double act roles,” Pete said.

“We didn’t want to be the funny guy and the straight guy.”

Tom added: “One of the things we have come to understand is that the audience places you into those roles, they see the differences between you and if you can grab hold of those roles and what the audience perceives, you can do more with them.”

Their latest work brings them to Doncaster with Hercules, giving a family-friendly twist to the classic Greek myth of the original superhero and his 12 impossible labours.

The show is on stage next Saturday (October 25) at 2pm and 7pm.
