SXSW: Max and Ivan fly the flag for British comedy in Texas http://t.co/rkigFYk41O— SXSW TOP NEWS (@SXSW_TopNews) March 7, 2013
Holmes and Watson was Max and Ivan’s first proper Edinburgh show – they sweated it out every night in a tiny basement and had to cancel one show when Max broke his ankle in The Wrestling half way through. They re-choreographed the show to incorporate crutches and won the Edinburgh Comedy Panel Prize later that month for the ankle breaking show – which kind of makes up for the years of limping that followed.
In 2013 Max and Ivan took Holmes and Watson to SXSW – the only British comedy act to be invited out.
