GIRAFFE – Let’s Talk About Sketch Baby (Giraffe)

By | Published on Wednesday 20 August 2014

Giraffe, a three piece comedy sketch troupe, have brought a new show packed with new material and colourful characters to the Fringe. This is a tight, hilarious production, offering an array of silly and surreal sketches. The fast turnover rate means that if you don’t enjoy one sketch, chances are you will enjoy the next, and the group’s versatile performances keep the show from becoming repetitive or boring. They’re certainly not short on good ideas or material and the recurring characters are strong enough that you’re happy to see them return. Some of the shorter sketches didn’t seem to work as well, however, and a punchier ending would have helped solidify an otherwise great show.

Underbelly Cowgate, until 24 Aug.
