Where and when: Pleasance at EICC (Pentland) at 20:15, 3rd-28th August
What it’s all about… NewsRevue is a cutting-edge, up to date, satirical, political, musical-comedy sketch show. We put celebrities and politicians underneath the comedic microscope and terrorise their poor decisions through funny sketches and songs and with some journalistic rigour. Sort of like if Andrew Marr wore big funny clown shoes.
You’ll like it if… Anyone and everyone will love our show. It caters to all comedic and political tastes, from Tik Tok to Tommy Cooper, from Corbyn to Kim-Jong Un.
You should see it because… Anyone who has ever been affected by any political decision should come and see it. Which is everyone, I imagine. But whether you’re politically minded or not it doesn’t matter, there’s something in it for everyone. If you haven’t heard about something awful a politician has done then you can find out through us, perhaps to the tune of an Elton John medley or something.
Anything else we should know…: One could argue that this show counts as a political protest, so due to recent law changes you might be lucky enough to watch us get arrested… and I think that alone is worth the price of admission.
