Fanfiction Comedy (Fanfiction Comedy)

By | Published on Sunday 4 August 2013

For the uninitiated, fanfiction is what happens when hardcore enthusiasts of films or books write their own additions to the plot. When you pile a group of young comedians in a room and ask them to write their own, things can get a bit carried away. The line-up varies and the stories change day by day, so the sky’s the limit for how weird and wonderful the scenarios could get, be it Harry Potter’s ‘Jeremy Kyle’ debut, or WWE wrestlers taking the starring roles in a blockbuster movie. ‘Fanfiction Comedy’ is supremely nerdy at times, but hugely entertaining. Punctuated by improvised commentary and input from the panel, those with a penchant for silliness and a bit of geekery will love it.

Assembly George Square, until 25 Aug, (not 13), 4.40pm.
