ED2012 Comedy Review: Revill’s Selection (Paul Revill / Laughing Horse Free Festival)

ED2012 4/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

In this eclectic comedy show with a changing line up, friendly and energetic host Paul Revill somewhat steals the show with his quick-witted and fast-paced comedy, though to be honest, it would have been good to see him on stage more. However, the comedians featuring the day I went were funny, outgoing and engaged well with the audience. The atmosphere at this show was amazing, partly because of the venue, but it was mainly the chat between viewers and comics that made things so convivial, as if we were just sitting around having a laugh with some really funny friends. Definitely worth a watch, even just for Revill himself, especially as there might be a bag of chocolate in it for you. I probably don’t have to spell out which kind.

Laughing Horse @ Espionage, 4-26 Aug, 1.05pm.
