ED2012 Comedy Review: Leads And Stern

ED2012 3/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

At the beginning of the show, Leads and Stern make the sad announcement that the third member of their group, Devondre, has died. His picture, in which he looks like a big time hip hop star, can be seen on the stage surrounded by fake candles. The big question is: can they carry on without him? Yes! Admittedly some of the sketches are a lot funnier than others and the moments when they break the ‘fourth wall’ of the sketches are the best of the bunch. But, their best is very good. Some clever trickery with voice-overs is also very amusing and adds a different dimension to the show. As a newly formed duo, they definitely don’t have anything to worry about.

Underbelly Cowgate, 2-26 August, 5.00pm.
