The St Andrews Revue

By | Published on Monday 12 August 2013

The St Andrews Revue provided a decent and engaging set of sketches at the delightful Caves venue. There was a tendency for a couple of the performers to frequently take the more dominant role in scenes, but all members of the cast demonstrated equal comedic capability. A restaurant date scenario, in which a creepy narrator was intent on imposing himself on the hapless couple, generated the most laughs of the evening. Some sketches, however, seemed to drag a little and did not match this high standard. This was particularly true of the group’s take on the psyche of “controlling” Judy Murray; a subject that numerous sketch acts seem to be relying on across the Fringe this year.

Just The Tonic at The Caves, until 25 Aug (not 13), 3.20pm.
