A Pile Of Wit (Antics Comedy Improv Troupe)

By | Published on Wednesday 7 August 2013

If it’s a pile of something, it’s certainly not wit. Whilst the show’s title clearly identified the key ingredient to a successful improv performance, these energetic entertainers unfortunately lacked the sharpness necessary for such a production. They seemed to acknowledge their shortcomings nonetheless, considering the simplicity of the themes that they chose to improvise with in the first place. The show suffered from a flat start, as subjects were taken from the crowd in an administrative fashion and from there on in a lack of structure plagued their efforts. The group of performers did give it their all, maintaining good energy in the room, but this wasn’t enough to mask their frailties.

C aquila, until 10 Aug, 5.45pm.
