AntiGraham (Graham)

By | Published on Saturday 17 August 2013

Tracing four unlikely companions as they fight for survival against a badger invasion, Graham are humorous but not incredible. Whilst I couldn’t claim that the plot running throughout their sketches has been tried before, there is something a bit cliché about hapless, unlikely heroes facing down a horde of bloodthirsty animals. This main thread is also interspersed with a series of entirely unrelated sketches, which are all fairly average, covering Santa Claus and psychiatry. Nevertheless, the comical voice-over which announces badger progress throughout the show raised laughs, and added a sense of grandeur to the comedy. It’s a shame the promising storyline of ‘AntiGraham’ wasn’t developed further, meaning it was only the patterns on their shirts that were outstanding today.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 25 Aug (not 12), 4.35pm.
