The world’s longest running live comedy show continues for its 44th year!
This renowned current affairs parody song and sketch show is acknowledged as a “rite of passage for all comedy newcomers” (Chortle). Alumni include The League of Gentlemen, Sarah Pascoe, Bill Bailey, Saskia Reeves and Michelle Collins. The cast members, described as having “Herculean levels of talent” (WhatsOnStage.com), together with an on-stage musical director, receive 5-star reviews at Edinburgh Fringe Festival every year.
A fast-moving mix of sketches and songs, NewsRevue propels you through the world’s news and current events at breakneck pace. No-one is safe in this all-kicking, idol-burning comedy, with brand new topical content injected into the show weekly by a crack team of writers and the cast alike. Masochistically popular amongst politicians, you may even see an MP in the audience…
