Nobody is safe: from Putin to Pistorious, politicians and celebrities alike come under fire in a turbo-charged barrage of hilarious songs and sketches with punchlines that will have you in stitches. A regular Fringe favourite, NewsRevue is back for its 35th year to poke fun at all things topical.
This Guinness World Record-breaking show is flawlessly delivered by four outstanding performers (Mimi Edwards, Matt Lee-Steer, Alice Marshall and Will Mulvey) at lightning speed expertly accompanied by an onstage Musical Director, Michael Riley - a post previously held by Bill Bailey.
NewsRevue's exceptional writing and original takes on current affairs mean you can expect the very best of British satire. Looking back over the biggest events of the year and those that are coming up - expect Scottish Independence to be a big theme - this year's NewsRevue is directed by Christopher Jefferies.
The show is acknowledged as a highly successful springboard for all the incredible talents involved, many of whom started their careers on the show before scaling great comedy heights. Described by Chortle as 'a rite of passage for all comedy new-comers' previous alumni include: Rory Bremner, Reece Shearsmith, Alistair McGowan, Bill Bailey, Michelle Collins, Zoe Lyons, Nick Helm, Cariad Lloyd, Bridget Christie, Gemma Arrowsmith, Sarah-Louise Young, Lorna Watson, Gemma Whelan, Luke Toulson and Sara Pascoe.
NewsRevue's accolades include the Guinness World Record for Longest Running Live Comedy Show, a Fringe First and a Perrier nomination.
