Greedy

There's some material in Greedy which really is on the furthest reaches of comedy. Subjects like paedophilia, incest and physical disabilities all come into the cross hairs of this highly talented team. It's dangerous, and they're balancing on a far limb, but they have the ability to present this tricky material in such a way that diffuses its controversial power.

The audience in the house tonight seem reluctant to play along. Perhaps they are nervous about laughing at some of the material. But in between the risky stuff, there are also great gems worth of oft-repeated TV specials. The concert drummer, T Rex and 80s vs 90s dance-off to name a few.

The four players, James Wren, Felicity Wren, Rachel Eagen and Louie Bayliss, each bring brilliant individual characterisations to the show, and together they are pushing that boundary of comedy just a little bit further.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.

The Blurb

An antidote to seriousness. After their sell-out success in 2006, the Greedies are back with a brand new slick and sexy sketch show. 'A Triumph'
