ED2012 Comedy Review: The Comedy Zone (Avalon Promotions)

By | Published on Friday 24 August 2012

Now in its twenty-second year, ‘The Comedy Zone’ is the longest running comedy showcase at the Fringe, continuing to offer the stage to four of the hottest up-and-coming comedians on the circuit. The compère for the evening, WitTank’s loveable Kieran Boyd, had the audience in his pocket; politely taking the piss, as well as creating a natural and relaxed atmosphere; adding a few witty observations here and there. The ingenious Ahir Shah, lively Hayley Ellis and charming Mark Smith then took to the stage, each offering a different innovative style of humour. ‘The Comedy Zone’ offers something for each comedy palate. So if you’re looking for an evening of great comedy, this is your pint of beer.

Pleasance Courtyard, 1-26 Aug, 10.45pm
