ED2012 Comedy Review: Chortle Presents – Fast Fringe (Chortle)

ED2012 4/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

Get ready for comedy in the fast lane with this speedy showcase featuring a different line-up of twelve comedians each night. Having completely different performers on from one night to the next means that each show will never be the same, but it’s obvious that organisers are trying to cover every base of comedy at the Fringe. Its selling point, however, is also its weakness, as the whole thing seems rather rushed; both house staff and comedians seemed rather harassed, creating something of a nervous atmosphere in the room. Saying that, with only one dud in the dozen, the only real problem was that the acts would whet your appetite then cruelly let you go.

Pleasance Dome, 4-25 Aug, 6.40pm.
