ED2011 Comedy Review: The Antics – Premature Ejokeulation (The Antics)
By Rosalind Scott | Published on Saturday 20 August 2011
“Much better than the title suggested”. This was the consensus as we left the theatre after watching this, er, interestingly named show. Title aside, this is a very funny group of men who seem to enjoy their improv games – standard fare a la ‘Whose Line…?’ and ‘Mock The Week’ – as much as their audience did. The funniest moment of the show came when hapless Gav was unable to guess what his team-mates were miming to him; the audience howled with laughter as his team-mates grew more and more breathless and frustrated. They’re not the slickest, or the wittiest at the improv game, but this show still offers unadulterated fun from a group of fairly skilled performers.
C, 3 – 13 Aug, 4.45pm (5.35pm), £6.50 – £9.50, fpp40.
