ED2012 Comedy Review: Bristol Revunions – Destination Adventure (Bristol Revunions)

ED2012 4/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

The Bristol Revunions are a highly polished university sketch troupe, who in ‘Destination Adventure’ convincingly evoke a group of junior maritime rangers – helped by some itsy bitsy shorts and equally flattering mustard kerchiefs. An unlikely romance, a homage to Fenton , and a recurring gag about Biff Carruthers, a man so hard he calls a coma a “Biff Sleep”, are just a couple of the daft, yet entertaining sketches put on by the performers. The funnies are shared equally between the whole group, and they work best when all on stage together. It’s definitely choc-a-block with japes, though some of the skits are a touch on the safe side, but their enthusiasm and a few stomach-crampingly funny lines make this a triumph.

Just The Tonic at The Caves, 1-26 Aug (not 14), 2.00pm
