Is it comedy, theatre or performance? Who cares, it's utterly brilliant

Pajama Men: Mark Chavez and Shenoah Allen in the astonishingly inventive The Last Stand to Reason
It’s a rare show that has every critic reaching for the superlatives and wishing they could award six stars out of five, but Pajama Men’s The Last Stand to Reason did that at the Edinburgh Fringe earlier this year earlier this year. Pajama Men consists of Mark Chavez and Shenoah Allen, two thirtysomething men from Albuquerque, New Mexico who, in a remarkable display of vocal and physical dexterity, create a world so detailed, so fully, beautifully and comically realised that it’s astonishing to note they do it with the aid of just two chairs and occasional music from the onstage Kevin Hume. Oh, and as their name suggests, they perform in jimjams, without other costumes or props.
