A rampant piss-take of the disaster/action movie genre, Armageddapocalypse follows maverick Jack Lang who must save the world from armageddon, apocalypse and the evil Volkov. Despite not being a disaster film aficionado, their dry wit and brilliantly silly characters won me over immediately. Although stunningly slick and painfully funny, there was a lovely feel of it having been written in a pub cont> cont> and rehearsed in a student dive, and these friends clearly make each other laugh. You should know the names of the foursome who devised this now, before everyone else catches on. James Moran, Lucien Young, Alastair Roberts and Mark Fiddaman – possibly the guys having the most fun on the Fringe. Go and join them.
Underbelly Bristo Square, 1-27 Aug (not 15), 9.30pm.
