Don’t Trust Salmon: Fin (Don’t Trust Salmon)

By | Published on Saturday 27 August 2011

The sketches just keep coming in this buzzing, diverse show, which even features mini audio skits to fill the scene changes with instant comic gratification. The performers are well-drilled and confident, though there is some discrepancy in their skills; it is also true that some sketches are funnier than others and could have been extended, whilst others needed cutting down. Nonetheless, the variety of punning, absurdity and visual comedy is a real virtue, and each sketch feels fresh and inventive, covering topics from Alice In Sunderland to the socio-economic strife of Tetris blocks. Performed in an intimate space to a delighted audience, this show is fast-paced, silly and polished – a brilliant (and good value) way to while away a Fringe afternoon.

Zoo Roxy, 5 – 29 Aug (not 15), 4.00pm (4.50pm), £6.00 – £8.00, fpp68.
