ED2012 Comedy Review: Absolute Improv! (To Be Continued…)

ED2012 4/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

In this lively show the experienced To Be Continued… troupe successfully blended the elements required to make this kind of improvised comedy – scenarios based partly on audience suggestions – work well. A rapport with said audience is essential and the talented foursome of performers achieved it using time-honoured improv show tactics, from using the spectators’ shouted-out ideas to taking verbal or physical input from volunteers on stage. They were rewarded with some great suggestions, which were incorporated into energetic, quick-witted and madcap performances based on a variety of different ‘games’. Some parts were weaker than others, but the few less-successful elements did not dampen the high spirits created by the rest of this brilliantly performed show.
