ED2012 Comedy Review: Aaaand Now For Something Completely Wireless – Free (Racing Minds / Laughing Horse Free Festival)

ED2012 4/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

Already doing another long-form show earlier in the day, 4-man improv troupe Racing Minds don sharp suits and bow-ties to exploit the 50s radio genre for everything it’s worth. Stylistically, it’s a great choice, allowing them to play multiple roles within the same scene and have great fun with sound effects. There’s a slight tendency to carry on with scenes that have perhaps run their course, and on this occasion it took a while for any actual narrative to kick in, but when such good comedy is being put together so quickly, such problems seem fairly minor in comparison. Above all, these are some damned funny chaps putting on an absolutely top-notch show.

Laughing Horse @ Meadow Bar, 2-26 Aug, 5.45pm.
