ED2012 Comedy Review: The Edinburgh Revue Stand-Up Show (Edinburgh Revue/Scottish Comedy Festival)

By | Published on Sunday 5 August 2012

There really is something for everyone in this veritable compendium of comedic styling. Some surreal, some deadpan, some observational, but all engaging. The enthusiasm of the Edinburgh University Comedy Society is infectious, and what they lack in composure they make up for in boundless energy. Featuring a particularly noteworthy turn by Hari Sriskantha, the Edinburgh Revue show real promise; each one of the ensemble showcases their individual style in turn, which makes for a refreshing comedy performance. With the occasional flicker of nerves, the delivery of the show has a slightly frenetic feel, but the irrepressible honesty and wit of almost all the material indicates these are ones to watch, both now and in the future.

Scottish Comedy Festival @ The Beehive Inn, 1-26 Aug (not 16), 2.30pm.
