“You’ve made this very, very difficult. I’m not sure what to do!” said Vic, before pushing Mike out of the passenger side door.

After hitting their stride with what may be remembered as the best “Death In A Minute” in history, Double Denim carried our sold-out audience on a unapologetically silly ride, brimming with playful charm in every single scene.

The second half of the show was live-tweeted by Impro Melbourne’s very own Rik Brown, so be sure to scroll down if you want to relive the highlights.
