ED2012 Comedy Review: FNT Live presents… The Jingling Lane Family Singers
A young troupe of comedians debuts at the Fringe with this insightful and hilarious collection of parodies, skits and sketches. Well-written, well-acted and well-rehearsed, this is a fast-paced and farcical indictment of modern life which pokes fun at classroom chavs, evangelical Christians awaiting the end of the world, and Jedward. Incorporating visual media to great effect, particularly in a side-splitting ‘Star Trek’ sketch, this is a truly original and creative take on a tried-and-tested format. Though it lags in places, impressive comic performances by each member of the cast lift ‘The Jingling Lane Family Singers’ into something really enjoyable. Something for everyone – don’t miss.
C aquila, 2-27 Aug (not 13), 8.15pm.
