Nobody is safe: from Farage to the royal foetus, politicians and celebrities alike come under fire in a turbo-charged barrage of bladder-threateningly funny songs and sketches brimming with punchlines. Expect the very best of British satire.

The longest-running live comedy show in the world is flawlessly delivered by four outstanding performers - Naomi Bullock, Kieran Mortell, Katriona Perrett and Simon Prag - at lightning speed. They are expertly accompanied by an on-stage Musical Director; this year Michael Riley returns to reprise his role - a post previously held by Bill Bailey.

NewsRevue's exceptional writing, superlative performances and original takes on current affairs have made it a Guinness World record-breaker, Fringe First winner and Perrier finalist.

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.

"I love NewsRevue. It's the first show I went to see. It's almost too funny for Edinburgh" - Joan Rivers.
