ED2012 Comedy Review: The Intimate Strangers (Intimate Strangers)

ED2012 4/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

The Intimate Strangers are determined to bring comedy to life in their sketch show, through a selection of hilarious characters and sketches with themes such as grannies in the cinema, cooking with wine, and Snow White left for dead, the audience was forced into fits of laughter, measured by the cast’s comedy-meter. They also made great use of pre-recorded sketches projected onto the wall whenever a scene change was going on, which kept everyone entertained. At the end of the show the actors got together to perform ‘Cult The [mini] Musical’, which was a comic delight, never mind the singing skills. A very amusing show that seemed to be enjoyed by all.

Just the Tonic at The Caves, 2-26 Aug (not 24), 3.15pm.
