The Real MacGuffins Come Again (The Real MacGuffins)

By | Published on Saturday 17 August 2013

The Real MacGuffins are a fast-paced, three-man sketch show. ‘Come Again’ is self-referential and clever, yet very, very silly. Expect some audience participation, razor-sharp wit and puns, puns, puns galore. Combining absurd physical comedy with bizarre costumes, they create more weird and wonderful characters than you thought possible. Dan, Jim and Matt’s comedic style of self-deprecating jokes and squabbling with each other keeps the sketches interesting and stops them from getting too cheesy. Highlights included the Victorian schoolroom sketch – which mixed silly humour with a tirade of Oscar Wilde quotes – and the video game sketch which is absolutely full of amazingly witty wordplay. ‘Come Again’ is energetic, light-hearted and hilariously funny.

Underbelly Cowgate, until 25 Aug (not 12), 5.00pm.
