Bog Standard Britain (Glenda And Stephen Edwards)

The risk of attending Fringe shows is that sometimes you’ll be sitting in a crowd of forty-odd howling humans, but will chronically (and frustratingly) fail to experience the titillation those fellow spectators are experiencing. In this case, I knew the exact reason – I’d racked up only a third of the birthdays of the rest of the audience-members. Thus, I tittered appreciatively at the witty scripts and eye-rolling caricatures, while they laughed blissfully. They didn’t care that the actors used scripts, and disrupted dialogue went entirely unacknowledged. They didn’t wince and quantify the political correctness of the sketches, they just enjoyed a collection of sketches which were clearly relevant, and obviously absolutely hilarious – to them.
