ED2012 Comedy Review: The St Andrews Revue (St Andrews Revue)

By | Published on Friday 10 August 2012

The St Andrews Revue take an always-fresh approach to some overdone subjects. Though the zeitgeisty topics they use have been well covered by more mainstream comics, their jokes about last year’s royal wedding, social networking and the inevitable ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’ reference were both funnier and cleverer than many. Naturally, not all of the sketches were perfect and a couple trailed off at the end, but there is obviously a lot of talent and intelligence going into the making of this show. Even when the troupe move away from up-to-the-minute pop culture references, they maintain their high standard, and some of the ideas are sparkling.

Just The Tonic At The Caves, 2-19 Aug (not 14), 12.40pm.
