Vladimir McTavish And Keir McAllister Look At The State Of Britain (Vladimir McTavish and Keir McAllister / The Stand Comedy Club)

By | Published on Friday 16 August 2013

Supposedly a satirical look at modern Britain, this show often feels like it’s simply making fun of things rather than attacking them. It was reasonably funny throughout, but the pair’s use of filmed interviews with a selection of British people seemed odd and broke the flow of the routine. McTavish and McAllister often seemed to be simply taking turns, rather than giving a collaborative performance. The show has a strong political focus and opened discussion on the Scottish referendum, which was one of its more interesting points. While not the sharpest or perhaps the funniest political comedy show out there, it’s still entertaining, enjoyable and informative, even if politics isn’t really your thing.

The Stand Comedy Club, until 25 Aug, 7.00pm.
