ED2012 Comedy Review: RH – Live (The RH Experience)

ED2012 4/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

Comedy sketch troupe The RH Experience – made up of Conor Jatter, Luke Spillane and Tom Webster – is having fun at the Fringe with their hour of improvised games. The amiable, flouro-hoodied performers effortlessly fill the stage with their whimsical, fast-paced improvisation. The crowd are warmly participatory, perhaps because of the intimacy of the space or the warm, unthreatening MC. Some suggestions were unceremoniously plonked into sketches never to return but better (often obscure) topics were skilfully handled, with the best material coming direct from the trio’s surreal imaginations. RH’s enthusiasm and laughter is infectious and, while the suggested use of Twitter felt gimmicky, their use of Wikipedia was perfect for this youthful update of traditional improv.

C Aquila, 12-27 Aug, 3.30pm.
