If ever there was a comedy institution, Newsrevue is it. Celebrating its 25th year (with a Guinness World Record to prove it); Newsrevue presents its special anniversary show at the Edinburgh Fringe.
The show itself is a little different from the normal 'best of year' show the guys from Canal Cafe bring north of the border. Because of the 25th anniversary, this year they have selected some of the best ever to compliment more contemporary sketches. A sprinkling of nostalgia, as they like to describe it.
As you'd expect from the team with 25 years experience, this is a polished show with bellyaching laughs. The musical numbers are razor sharp, and the sketches in between will leave you gasping for breath.
Edinburgh is, or course, full of Newsrevue wannabes with their political sketch shows. Do yourself a favour and see the original first.
