WitTank

Once again WitTank return to the Fringe with a material that is sure to entertain. The sketch comedy group present a show filled with energy. Performing material that ranges from a kleptomaniac clergyman to a very special casserole, there is something here for everyone to enjoy. WitTank present an engaging show that will have you laughing till next year.Without a doubt the strongest part of the production is the chemistry between Kieran Boyd, Mark Cooper-Jones and Naz Osmanoglu. They play off each other brilliantly. The sketches are funny but it is the trio that make watching it great. They are dynamic performers and charm their way through any rough patches. Though some sketches are definitely stronger and more thought out than others, their relentless personalities make it work. They understand that committing whole-heartedly to a sketch, no matter how ridiculous, makes it entertaining. Doing this, they are able to squeeze out laughs from the audience even if the sketch is not one of their best. They fill the space with their imaginative characters and use the atmospheric venue to great advantage.WitTank don’t rely on dirty jokes to get laughs - don’t misunderstand, it’s a far from clean show - but the more risqué material is a side note rather than the punch line. WitTank demonstrate they have more talent than that and don’t have to rely on cheap laughs. Their delivery and timing is superb, working the audience and taking advantage of every potential laugh each sketch has to offer.

Reviews by Nicole Adam

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

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.
