Absolute Improv (To Be Continued…)

By | Published on Tuesday 23 August 2011

I imagine there is edgier, more risqué improv to be found at this year’s Fringe, but this offering is one of good clean fun that will draw laughter from teenagers and grandparents alike. With a variety of games to which the audience contribute, the performers free-wheel through songs, rhyming sketches and rapid scene changes. My highlight was the infomercial parody in which the cast borrowed the audience’s belongings as props to great comic effect. Taking a little while to get their comedic juices flowing, the troupe could have got off to a more confident start; Lauren Berning, the only female cast member, blazes a vibrantly funny trail and the others relaxed to present a diverting and droll show.
