Lights! Camera! Improvise! (Mischief Theatre)

By | Published on Sunday 11 August 2013

There are no words to describe the brilliance of this show. Of course, at first the audience is in charge, and must suggest a setting, title, and type of show. Then the actors take over, providing absolutely top-class comedy, as each and every one of them pulls off unexpected parts with perfect fluidity and consummate comedic style. Obvious character stereotypes are milked for all they’re worth, which certainly proves effective judging by the number of laughs gained. The ease with which all performers thought on their feet was, quite simply, utterly astounding. If you fancy laughing until you cry, ‘Lights! Camera! Improvise!’ should be your first port of call.

Underbelly Cowgate, until 25 Aug, 7.20pm.
