Comedy, Evolved (Darwin’s Waiting Room)

By | Published on Monday 19 August 2013

This group of gifted actors provide an hour of nice, clean family fun, and a wide variety of sketches with broad ranging themes. The comics are quick to get into character, and all play their parts with vigour and enthusiasm, but it is perhaps a format that would work slightly better on television than it does on stage, and there were one or two sketches that were a little longer than necessary. However, the brilliant acting more than made up for the shortfalls, and both the audience and the performers were all clearly enjoying themselves. So if you are in the mood for an hour of silliness for its own sake, then this is exactly what ‘Comedy, Evolved’ will provide.

theSpace @ Surgeon’s Hall, until 24 Aug (not 11), 8.05pm.
