Vinegar Knickers: Sketchy Beast

By | Published on Tuesday 9 August 2011

This production sees a number of amusing sketches, interwoven with comical song and dance numbers, performed by a wannabe diva, a female Justin Bieber look-alike and a ginge. The show remained engaging from beginning to end, but as to their sense of humour… well, it’s a matter of taste. Though I found them to be funny overall – especially in their mastery of every British accent I could think of – some moments did become excessively frenzied and, at times, dealt with the banal or base, bringing in unnecessary talk of vaginas and an overly blithe reference to Hitler. This shouldn’t detract from the commendable acting, however, or the show’s entertainment value in general, as it should go down very well with comedy fans.

C soco, 3-29 Aug (not 15), 4.35pm (5.25pm), £6.50 – £9.50, fpp163.
