The Quotidian Revue (Dryburgh Fletcher Ward)

By | Published on Saturday 27 August 2011

‘The Quotidian Revue’ want to celebrate the minutiae of life. “Question your teaspoons,” they demand of their audience, at the beginning of an eccentric hour of comedy that sees three men take turns lecturing us on such illuminating topics as letterboxes, Boots meal deals and the average price of a Twirl bar. Statistics, PowerPoint presentations and pie charts abound as the three comedians – Lewis Dryburgh, Peter Fletcher and James Ward – manage to dredge humour up from the unlikeliest of sources. It helps that they’re all so likeable, of course, but what really makes this show fly is the fact that it’s so easy to relate to: we all enjoy pointless trivia, after all. It’s odd, but ‘The Quotidian Revue’ is also rather brilliant.
