The Tourists – A Free Festival Sketch Show (Tourists)

By | Published on Tuesday 16 August 2011

There was standing room only for ‘The Tourists’ in the tiny Lizard Lounge, and they may soon need a bigger venue. The comedy performed by this young group is inventive, original, sometimes downright weird but always joyfully funny. Poking fun at everything and nothing in particular The Tourists take on a wide range of characters from the hapless robot File-Tron to the menacing Maria, the nun. Each individual member of the group is a delight to watch, but it is the way they work energetically and unselfishly together that makes them successful. Although some sketches could be tightened up a little so laughs come as smoothly as they should, this is free comedy that I would pay money for.

Laughing Horse at Espionage, 5 – 20 Aug, 12.15pm (13.15pm), free, fpp162.
