Fat Kitten Vs The World (Fat Kitten Improv / PBH Free Fringe)

By | Published on Saturday 27 August 2011

Facing the Improv group in residence was the Improv group Ludus Ludius, from Cardiff. The format of the show and the style of games were a touch jittery and hindered pace attempted to be created. Nor was it that funny: the emphasis is on creating coherent plot-lines and congruent characters rather than comedy. Games ended with a gag or punchline rather than when the story had been nicely rounded off to its natural conclusion, which left the show feeling a little monotonous. Abi Symons (the captainn of Fat Kitten) has a good wit on her and, slap me on the wrist for this, I found her funnier than most on stage. I learnt some cracking chat-up lines, though. Win.

The Voodoo Rooms, 14 – 27 Aug, 4.15pm (5.15pm), free, fpp73.
