Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

The freshest act is Billy Howard and Katherine Harris with their tumbling, bending, knockabout work, and good farcical acting 'all done with a 'humour that is very effective'. Walton and Lester 'have improved their "World's Worst Wizard" act and it is quite a feature'.
