LOLympics Live (Bronston Jones And Int’l Guests / Free Festival)

By | Published on Tuesday 6 August 2013

The ‘LOLympics’ is a great idea: it showcases a variety of acts from the Free Festival by giving a few performers a limited amount of time in which to lure people into their full length shows. The two compères held the show together well and provided some of the best jokes, but each performer raised more than sufficient laughs, along with some brave audience members who ventured voluntarily on to the stage. Gold medals were handed out to all deemed worthy and a medal is certainly something the show itself deserves, providing not just consistent hilarity throughout but an interesting sneak peek into further Fringe options. Not perfect, but not far off.

Laughing Horse @ The Free Sisters, until 25 Aug, 4.00pm.
