Sisters: White Noise (Sisters)

By | Published on Sunday 27 August 2017

For a Fringe debut, Sisters are on the right track. Serving up sketch comedy mingled with an overarching narrative, they’re attempting to draw in a wider audience: the show opens with them projected onto a screen, apparently cold-calling people around the world to promote themselves. The sketches themselves range from witty and original to somewhat patchy, and feature, in all honesty, some pretty cheap jokes. They’re very aware that their comedy can be a bit disturbing and somewhat confusing, two things that tend to tickle me. They poke fun at all manner of potentially taboo topics, but the superficiality of it often results in the aforementioned cheap jokes, teetering precariously on that fine line between dark and offensive.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 27 Aug.
