Up-and-coming comics Alex and Ben have been booked in the warm-up spot for a beloved but fading double act s comeback tour. Neither is delighted to be playing to a sparse crowd in a sleepy seaside town but when it s revealed that a Hollywood director is in the audience, both acts glimpse a final chance for their big break.

Cue sabotage, mistaken identity and full-on farcical mayhem, as the performance descends into a desperate battle for the limelight. With the action alternating between offstage and on, and the tone between Noises Off and Morecambe and Wise s old-school charm, The Comeback is a heart-warming exploration of bittersweet nostalgia and the enduring power of friendship.
