How Do I Get Up There? (How Do I Get Up There?)

By | Published on Wednesday 7 August 2013

Thud! That’s the sound of enthusiasm, as the performers quite literally throw themselves into an energetic sketch show, complete with occasional prat-falls. As this team were advertised as Radio 4 stars, I was expecting verbal wizardry, but was pleasantly surprised to find that they were also talented physical comedians. Pop culture has inspired a great deal of the material, making the show easily accessible, but exploring such easy pickings with imaginative, high concept scenarios proved a welcome addition. All three performers were equally gifted, although particular tribute must be paid to the wonderfully expressive James Kirk. Guaranteed laughter, from a  trio who seem to be very much on the way up.

Assembly Rooms, until Aug 25 (not 10), 4.00pm.
