ED2012 Comedy Review: Jigsaw – Gettin’ Jiggy (Avalon Promotions)

By | Published on Monday 20 August 2012

A sketch-troupe consisting of three stand-up comedians – Dan Antopolski, Nat Luurtsema and Tom Craine – Jigsaw return to Edinburgh with a show of innovative and inventive skits. The whole performance is exceptionally tight, fast-paced and crammed with entertaining material; it was hard to believe that the full hour was up by the end. Particularly hilarious were the running gags, with one about a man seeking IVF never failing to have the audience in hysterics. My only minor criticism is that Luurtsema often felt like an accessory in many of the sketches and should have had a more prominent role. However, it’s clear to see why this trio are rising stars in the comedy world, having already been picked up by BBC television and radio. This Jigsaw fits together perfectly.

Pleasance Courtyard, 1-27 Aug, 4.45pm.
