So On And So Forth Present Human Era (So On And So Forth)

By | Published on Saturday 27 August 2011

These three comedians put on a wonderfully constructed, written, and performed sketch show, with an excellent set of sometimes surreal drama. Particularly enjoyable are the call backs that thread the piece together; the sketches don’t link through plot or carry over transitions, but frequent references to a deceased member, Quentin, and the ongoing legal struggle over the rights to his material are a well used tool to make these unconnected scenes into a show. As well as evidently being good writers, the three have truly expressive faces, with some sketches dependent on their ability to hold a scene with these alone. This tight performance has laughs throughout – a skill I’ve grown to value greatly at this year’s festival.

Just The Tonic at The Caves, 5 – 27 Aug (not 17), 4.45pm (5.45pm), £6.50 – £7.50, fpp153.
