Bank managers of London’s West End best be wary for another year; Mischief Theatre’s smash-hit The Comedy About A Bank Robbery is celebrating its second West End birthday with news of a third year’s extension at the Criterion Theatre.

A knock-out hit in the truest sense of the phrase – there are 127 blows landed by characters each performance, amounting to 106,045 since the show opened – The Comedy About A Bank Robbery is now booking until 7 April 2019, offering the chance to see plenty more slapstick hilarity.

You can check out our quickfire questions interview with the new cast right here.

Mischief Theatre’s smash-and-grab hit is a fast, fabulous, comedy caper. Packed with dynamite, rib-tickling comedy, audiences can expect mistaken identities, love triangles, hidden agendas, and plot twists aplenty, as a hapless motley crew aim to score a priceless diamond from Minneapolis City Bank.

In a town where everyone’s a crook, who will end up bagging the jewel? It’d be criminal not to find out.

The show was created by Mischief Theatre, the comedy geniuses behind the Olivier Award-winning The Play That Goes Wrong, and the nominated recent hits Peter Pan Goes Wrong and Mischief Movie Night. The Comedy About A Bank Robbery itself was nominated in the Best New Comedy category last year.
