ED2012 Comedy Review: School Of Comedy

By | Published on Thursday 23 August 2012

‘School Of Comedy’ is a sketch show starring children aged between nine and sixteen, and it’s much funnier than that description makes it sound. The scarily young cast have great timing and remarkable presence for their age and the appreciative audience eats up their antics. Some of the ensemble skits are a bit weak – the kids don’t have their group timing down pat yet – but the individual items are knock-outs, with the ‘Youth News’, ‘Suri Cruise’s Diary’ and ‘Bob Diamond Is Forever’ really hitting the spot. ‘School Of Comedy’ also contains the best tactical F-bomb I’ve seen this Festival, deployed with real aplomb and precision. More than a few future stars on display here, I suspect.

Assembly Hall, 20-26 Aug, 7.40pm.
