Instant Sunshine

By | Published on Friday 19 August 2011

There is something very refreshing about a comedy that does not rely on smut or controversy to incite laughter. This charming, clever act uses a mixture of acting, characters and music to amuse its (more mature) audience. The music, in truth, could last on its own – soft reedy voices sing wry lyrics about the perils of holidays and going to see the doctor. These veteran performers are skilled at the instruments they play and the surly double bass player is a nice touch. This is, however, sold as a comedy show and in honesty, it’s a bit too kitsch to be really funny. Nonetheless, a classic show that is suitable for all the family – particularly granny.

Pleasance Dome, 5 – 13 Aug, 2.30pm (3.30pm), £8.00 – £9.00, fpp92.
