News Revue may be back every year but it’s always an entirely new show! This Guinness World Record-breaking, Fringe First-winning, Perrier finalist, news-based song and sketch show is where you should come if you’re in need of a cathartic dose of comic exasperation – all in the spirit of free expression.
Although NewsRevue is a Fringe stalwart its content changes all the time, reflecting the very latest world events; the Edinburgh show is a highlight of this year’s news so expect the very best of British satire with the demise of democracy, Brexit and, of course, the unavoidable Trump! The excellent writing, superlative performances and original takes on current affairs make this a must-see at the Fringe every year.
News Revue features the talents of Howard Grater, Sam Sheldon, Abigail Simpson and Elissa Churchill and is directed by Katie Pesskin and with musical direction by Tom Barnes.
News Revue will be presented as part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe by Pleasance Courtyard (Beyond) from 2nd August at 18:30 (not 15th) and is suitable for ages 14+ with parental guidance.
