Sketch duo Henry Perryment and Joe Barnes described Dougal as their "biggest show yet" in the brochure, but then failed to turn up, every single night. Instead, audiences were met by two venue staff, who admittedly looked exactly like them. These staff members fired off a string of impressive sketches, aided by Dougal, their sound guy. With an original score from Henry’s composer brother, Max, waiting for Goodbear turned out to be a thoroughly agreeable strategy.
