ED2012 Comedy Review: Noise Next Door – Bring The Noise (Bound And Gagged Comedy by arrangement with Comic Voice Management)

ED2012 4/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

It is impossible to ignore The Noise Next Door. The sheer energy of this talented five-man improv troupe, together with their raucous delivery, will have you gripped from the outset. Relentlessly entertaining, the group take the most random suggestions the audience can throw at them and turn them into riotous sketches with formidable speed. The results include songs, scenes and even an entire play: in this case, a village amdram production of ‘The Dark Knight Rises’, themed around an infected well and with a bewildered Geordie Wombatman as the hero. It is the songs, though, which are the highlight of the show. Clever, irrepressibly funny and, of course, very loud, The Noise are fast becoming a Fringe favourite.

Pleasance Courtyard, 1-27 Aug (not 8, 14), 5.00pm.
