Dave Gibson And Charlie Talbot – Battle Of Britain North Vs South (Corrie McGuire for Objective Talent)

By | Published on Saturday 20 August 2011

EastEnders or Corrie? The Beatles or The Stones? Dave Gibson and Charlie Talbot return to Edinburgh to sort out the age-old question – which is better, the north of England or the south? Low budget and self-consciously shambolic, in this performance, audience participation is mandatory. Warning: don’t wear a loud shirt to participatory comedy! Moustachioed Dave representing the North, and black tie clad Charlie representing the South, play up to geographical stereotypes and are fun, full of energy and masters of the so-bad-they’re-good regional puns. At times a little too formulaic and cheesy, ‘Battle of Britain’ is nonetheless entertaining and will have you laughing along, praying not to be picked.

Underbelly, 4 – 29 Aug (not 6, 16), 5.00pm (6.00pm), £8.50 – £10.50, fpp64.
