ED2012 Comedy Review: Ladies And Gentlemen (Ladies And Gentlemen / Laughing Horse Free Festival)

ED2012 3/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

Join four improvisation comedians in an hour of quick-witted and fast-paced goofball sketches featuring word play, silliness, and spot-on comedic timing. Sketches tackled topics such as the creation of a Last Words Epitaph app for Facebook, dialling the afterlife and receiving a switchboard, and clouds going on a blind date. Most of the sketches are clever and well delivered but others surpass the goofy mark and become more strange and awkward the longer they go on. Each individual improviser is very talented and their facial expressions are perfect, although the sound effects are occasionally too loud and mistimed. Despite this, however, it’s a great family-friendly show.

Laughing Horse @ the Counting House, 2-26 Aug, 3.30pm.
