ED2012 Comedy Review: Dissecting Comedy (Mags Woodward and Adam Russell / Laughing Horse Free Festival)

ED2012 3/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

This was a very casual affair, the open window providing a gentle backing track made up of light pub garden chatter whilst the amiable pair of performers did their stuff. There were few defined jokes but the charming atmosphere involved the audience well and ensured that everyone in attendance was at least in a good mood. Taking us through the events of previous shows and various tales from their lives, this former couple had an excellent chemistry which resulted in a very intimate mood. Whilst you won’t be blown away if you see this this show, you’ll almost certainly have a lovely time and could well learn a useful perianal fact.
