A To Z Improv Comedy (Improv Scotland / PBH’s Free Fringe)

By | Published on Saturday 17 August 2013

Improvised comedy requires a specific skill-set; you need a slightly narcissistic streak to perform it and the ingenuity to make it work. A to Z have a little of both, but need to be more aware of the reactions of their audience. Poor sketches lasted too long, while good ones ended too quickly and others got completely lost in the battle to find the appropriate, ideally funny, words. However, though some of the performers struggled, others clearly have a knack for improvisation, and, given a better platform to work with, could really do well. There’s plenty to improve on here, but there is potential; whether they can make it to the next level really depends on their application.

Kilderkin, until 24 Aug, 11.00pm.
