Jonny And The Baptists – The End Is Nigh (Supporting Wall)

Jonny & The Baptists

Performing in the round is never easy, but these two musical comedians handle the daunting task with obvious ease. The sheer intensity of the show means that the mood rarely dips and the eager audience are highly entertained throughout. Not a single minute of the piece is wasted, all of the material works towards the goal of delivering a powerful political message about climate change. As a whole the show really is beautifully written and expertly crafted – everything interlocks, setting up the next song, tangent or quip. The duo have built the perfect balance between hard-hitting satire and juvenile playfulness to convey their much appreciated comedy stylings surrounding this modern day topic.

Summerhall until 30 Aug.
