Fat Blast And Crackers: 101 Sketches In 50 minutes! (The Scribbling Ape)

By | Published on Saturday 17 August 2019

Hold onto your hats – this is sketch comedy at a pace! Delivering a punchline every thirty seconds, the Scribbling Ape foursome keep everything moving onstage (and off) with well practised aplomb. Some of the sketches are very funny, some are not, and some move so fast that I missed the punchline, or the setup, or both. But with so many jokes you’re always going to have the odd dud. I was surprised that they included some audience participation, expecting that the time invested would make it counterproductive, but they managed to hit the target with seconds to spare. The audience loved it – one guy turning red and almost unable to breath because he was laughing so hard.

Just The Tonic at The Caves, run ended.
