Quiz In My Pants (Nicola Bolsover, Laura Lexx, Miles Lloyd / PBH’s Free Fringe)

By | Published on Saturday 20 August 2011

‘Quiz In My Pants’ offers promising moments of energy and improvisation but ultimately fails to hit the mark. Ramshackle formatting and an audience immune to banter means that this show falls a little flat. Question rounds are followed by entertaining stand-up from the two quiz teams. However, there are far too many questions about pointlessly random subjects, and the teams spend too long just guessing the answers. Thus, by the time they’ve figured out that Sean Bean appears nude in episode three of ‘Lady Chatterly’s Lover’, we no longer care. The stony-faced audience don’t help matters, either. Perhaps this show is better suited to a later time-slot, when the audience is lubricated with alcohol rather than rainwater.
