ED2012 Comedy Review: The Oxford Revue – Prattle Royale Oxford Revue

ED2012 5/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

The bright young things from The Oxford Revue return to Edinburgh with another side-achingly entertaining show. The writing and piecing together of the sketches in this one hour show was witty, inventive and extremely clever, leaving me astonished at the level of professionalism shown by this group. What’s more, the seven performers clearly possess fantastic chemistry and play off each other beautifully, adding to the hilarity of the show. The delivery of each sketch was outstanding; it’s quite clear that these guys really know their craft already, displaying a talent equalling that of some of the more established performers I’ve seen. I implore you to get yourself to Cowgate and watch the comedy stars of the future.
