Movin’ On Up! With Politically Erect – Free (Politically Erect)

By | Published on Wednesday 10 August 2011

Any comedian, or indeed group of comedians that slate the Daily Mail readership are okay with me. These boys do just that in a brutally honest comment on British attitudes and culture: their satirical game show sketch about asylum seekers is nothing short of hilarious, and the rest of the audience seem to think so too. There is a pleasant grubbiness to Politically Erect. They work well as a threesome – both aesthetically and comically – and the quirky, matching, all-white costumes place them somewhere between hospital porter and convict. You do get the impression, however, that they’ve made up the routine over a pint, as they lost the hilarity in one too many of their sketches. Worth a look, nonetheless.

Laughing Horse @ The Counting House, 4 – 28 Aug, 3.45pm (4.45pm), free, fpp122.
