ED2012 Comedy Review: Rory & Tim – Good For Nothing (PBH’s Free Fringe)

ED2012 5/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

Cheeky chappies ‘Rory & Tim’ (and Ian) are a sketch trio to look out for. These three charismatic performers were once part of the Oxford Revue, and have banded together to form this incredibly talented and strong sketch troupe. The writing is cutting-edge and original – you’ll find yourself thinking, “how on earth did they come up with that?!” – while the show is extremely entertaining. The short clips of song recordings are both absolute genius and utterly hilarious, and the boys offer a perfect combination of both witty and silly sketches. The venue resounded with roaring laughter, and you could hear the audience whispering words of praise. As the cheeky trio put it themselves: “this show is good… for nothing”.

The Voodoo Rooms, 4-25 August (not 13), 5.05pm
