Fresh Bread Presents Johnny’s Favourite Show (Fresh Bread / PBH’s Free Fringe)

By | Published on Saturday 20 August 2011

Fresh Bread are a young group of comedians, which makes me admire their confidence in coming to Edinburgh and putting themselves out there. Unfortunately, a lot of the ‘quirky’ sketches they perform fall flat and simply aren’t funny. Anna Cory stands out from the rest as being quite witty; however, the writing of the show and under-confidence from her co-stars let them down. The whole ‘Johnny’ element also seems a little redundant; apparently without this key member, the show won’t be the same –but this just seems a feeble excuse for how terrible it already is. When he finally appears wearing an elephant mask and utensils for arms, the audience still don’t really get it.
