Lolly Adefope, Jack Whitehall and Ellie White show the chaos of caring in Luger
The stars of Freddie Waters' hilarious short squabble over an old man's nursing needs.
Care for an elderly relative can be a heartbreaking, desperate situation. But, as this comedy short from new Outsider signing Freddie Waters goes to prove, it can also be pretty funny.
Essentially a single conversation between Tom, a spluttering academic played perfectly by Jack Whitehall, and the carers to his elderly grandfather, a deliciously sparring pairing of Lolly Adefope and Ellie White, Waters' deft touch, ear for a joke and elegant framing turn what could be a simple sketch into a wonderfully enjoyable character study.
Aided by a sparking script and utilising the considerable talents of Adefope, Whitehall and White (themselves extremely chucklesome people, as their stand-up/character comedy goes to prove), Luger is a lovely shot to the funnybone.
