The Leeds Tealights – Discuss (Leeds Tealights)

The Leeds Tealights

Disaster strikes The Leeds Tealights, as they lose one of their members to the sketch world. We watch ‘backstage’, in between sketches, as they frantically try to devise a plan to bring their comrade back and complete the show. They’re an amusing group, playing to their strengths with well constructed punchlines and sketches parodying famous political and celebrity figures. Occasionally, their high energy leaves sketches feeling too rapid and wordy, and the audience could do with a bit more time to absorb the group’s obvious talent. Hugh Coles notably shines through as a comedian with great dynamism, playing many absurd characters. Overall, this promises to entertain, though we might need something a little stronger than tea to keep up with them.

Just the Tonic at The Caves, until 29 Aug.
