ED2012 Comedy Review: Gagging For Attention (DMU Footlights)

ED2012 4/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

Not sure who to see at the Fringe? Gagging for Attention brings you a changing selection of four new acts plus a compère. The ten-minute sets made for a fast-paced performance, free of the lulls typically seen in some stand-up shows, and so the audience were immediately drawn in and the upbeat atmosphere was infectious. Banter was silly and thoroughly enjoyable as compère Ben Hustwayte introduced the comedians, all of whom were young, enthusiastic and very confident, and though some stood out more than others, this show never lost its momentum. With a changing daily line-up, this is clearly one place to be to catch the up and coming talent of the comedy world.

Just The Tonic at The Caves, 5-26 Aug, 2.15pm.
