ED2012 Comedy Review: Beard (Joan Of Laugh)

ED2012 5/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

You are watching ‘Beard’: two extremely talented young women, Rosa Robson and Matilda Wnek, bringing an original and brilliant production very much from the Cambridge school of comedy. An intelligently drawn up, character comedy sketch show, played as though watching a series of television programmes and commercials. Musical interludes and accompaniments keep the fluidity and fun going: a very nice touch. Despite a few running jokes there seems to be little connecting the sketches, apart from their hilarity, but the set runs through faultlessly and keeps the audience laughing. Rosa is wonderfully animated throughout, and Matilda’s often deadpan delivery works perfectly alongside. These two are one to watch for the future, and well worth seeing now.

Assembly Hall, 2-27 (not 15) Aug, 4.00pm.
tw rating 5/5 | [Conor Riordan]
