ED2012 Comedy Review: 101 Comedy Club – Free (Laughing Horse Free Festival)

ED2012 4/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

There are times when the direction this show takes is confusing or even non-existent. This, however, seems to be the point: it’s organised comedic chaos. The comedians bring a dark and flippant sense of humour to the stage and, with the Master of Ceremonies being a ginger Australian koala bear playing the mandolin and serenading (shouting at) members of the audience, this show may not be for the faint-hearted. But with acts changing every ten minutes the tempo and confusion is kept high, which is all part of the fun and helps to keep the audience involved. Matt Wills, Ian Miller and Tony Harris deserve credit for putting together a pandemonic production that is funny, fast and free.

Meadow Bar, 3-26 Aug, 7.00pm.
