Farewell Tim Ed2016

Tim has died in a freak accident, so Charlie Robb and Sam Knights decide it would be most fitting to devise a sketch show in his honour. Over an hour of highly accomplished comedy, we get to know Tim and his two friends well. Weaving in discussions about their sketches and performance, akin to ‘That Mitchell and Webb Look’, their use of a narrative to tie together their hilarious observations and anecdotes works extremely well. There’s a twist that sees the story take a surprising turn, and one of the best forms of audience participation I have seen for a while. Daft, confident and genuinely funny, ‘Farewell Tim’ is one of my highlights of the Fringe so far.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 22 Aug.
