The Durham Revue: Laugh Actually
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Back with a new troupe and 100% new material, come and see the renowned Durham Revue perform their own brand of 'masterful' (ThreeWeeks) sketch comedy! Known for their irreverent style, and peerless chemistry, they are 'highly professional, wonderfully witty and perfectly paced' (Broadway Baby).

In 2016, the Durham Revues sell-out Fringe show Gigglebox received overwhelming praise, including 5* reviews and the Derek Award for Best Sketch Comedy Show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. This year, the troupe has gone from strength to strength with multiple sell-out shows, rave reviews and numerous accolades.

From the group that brought you Jeremy Vine, Alex MacQueen, Arthur Bostrom, Nish Kumar, Ed Gamble, Tom Neenan and Massive Dad, and as seen on stages across Durham, Oxford, Cambridge, Leeds and Edinburgh, Laugh Actually is student comedy at its finest!
