ED2012 Comedy Review: The Fitzrovia Radio Hour

By | Published on Sunday 5 August 2012

The props range from the typical (a bicycle bell) to the obscure (a lettuce), with the appearance of a particularly welcome watermelon drawing the largest reaction from the audience. The cast keep things well-paced and extraordinarily well coordinated; the fact that no one lost an eye is an impressive achievement on its own. The hour is split into three increasingly funny sections, eventually evolving into their own bizarre chapter of a warped radio programme. Each cast member is allowed time to shine and showcase individual talent, but it is when they come together that their best work is accomplished. Well worth seeing for the final act alone.
