Babushka: A Sketch Show (Little Apple Productions)
By Oliver Jaques | Published on Tuesday 23 August 2016
Taking Fringe promotion to the extreme, by flyering in their own show, Babushka deliver an hour of good fun sketches. This three-man group use the loose frame of Russian dolls to create sketches about anything they find funny. Mainly playing versions of themselves, the lads let the script provide the jokes using no costumes or props. A combination of clever word play and plain silly jokes means they’ll hit the mark with all audiences. Some of the sketches using social stereotypes feel as if we may have seen them before, but the rest are original enough to cover this. An undeniably funny show from three very talented writers.
Just The Tonic at The Mash House, until 28 Aug.
