A Betrayal Of Penguins – Endangered For A Reason (Betrayal Of Penguins)

By | Published on Friday 12 August 2011

When a zombie outbreak happens at the Oscars and two sports commentators try to kill one another, you know that you’re witnessing a very different kind of sketch show. Betrayal Of Penguins bring a chaotic bunch of sketches to the stage, wherein playing a female character means removing your trousers and one character in every scene requires a ridiculous accent. Aaron Heffernan in particular displays an excitable comedic style very similar to that of Lee Evans, making his performance a definite highlight. A superb and jaw-achingly hilarious hour of comedy, that, for all its mayhem, is the perfect sketch show. These boys are set to have a great month, so don’t miss out!

Gilded Balloon Teviot, 3 – 29 Aug (not 19, 20), 5.45pm (6.45pm), £7.50 – £9.50, fpp48.
