ED2012 Comedy Review: The Expeditionary Force In The First Supper (Laughing Horse Free Festival / Ten In A Bed)

By | Published on Monday 20 August 2012

In one of the little gems to be discovered in the depths of the Fringe, The Expeditionary Force offer a hilarious comedy sketch show. By mixing the absurd with the mundane and figures of the past with modern day scenarios, the show is well-developed and canny in its humour. The cast made clever with sound to produce unique wordplay with lots of tongue-twisting alliteration to great effect whilst strong performances from the three-cast members led to a concise and pithy show that is thoroughly enjoyable. Offering sophisticated material that relied on nothing more than its own strength, this was an ideal way to spend an afternoon at the Fringe.

Edinburgh City Football Club, 10-12 Aug, 3.30pm.
