Jigsaw – Jiggle It (Avalon Promotions)

By | Published on Wednesday 21 August 2013

Back with a high-energy show, tightly packed with witty sketches and new material, Jigsaw’s third Edinburgh run is sure to be as successful as the previous two. The sketches are very short (sometimes lasting less than a minute) and the jokes come rapidly, so make sure you’ve had plenty of coffee beforehand. Some scenes are based around a single idiom or gag, so they don’t develop much, but the rapidity of scenes keeps the audience’s attention and stops this becoming a problem. The performers have a great rapport, both amongst themselves and with the audience. They’re not afraid to be silly and they move skilfully from character to character – a brilliant show, full of harebrained ideas.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 26 Aug, 4.45pm.
