NewsRevue 2014 at the Pleasance Courtyard

Satirical news show returns to Edinburgh Fringe for its 35th year.

NewsRevue

Nobody is safe: from Putin to Pistorious, politicians and celebrities alike come under fire in a turbo- charged barrage of hilarious songs and sketches. A regular Fringe favourite, NewsRevue is back for its 35th year to poke fun at all things topical.

You can see the show at the Pleasance Courtyard, Beyond, 60 Pleasance, Edinburgh, EH8 9TJ from Wednesday 30th July – Monday 25th August 2014 (except 12th), 6.30pm. For those south of the border, London previews will run 10th – 20th July at the Canal Café Theatre (Thursday to Saturday at 9.30pm, Sundays at 9pm).

This Guinness World Record-breaking show is flawlessly delivered by four outstanding performers at lightning speed expertly accompanied by an onstage Musical Director, Ed Bussey – 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. Alumni include: Rory Bremner, Reece Shearsmith, Alistair McGowan, Bill Bailey and Michelle Collins.
