Humerus: St. George’s Medics Revue - One4Review
Every year for the last few I have sworn off Student Revues. The reason? Basically I am not the demographic they are pitching at, so I’m wasting their time and mine by going. There is usually an exception to this rule and that is St. George’s Medics Revue ‘cause they just go for it with bad taste, witty, irreverent and more mainstream humour than others.
These trainee doctors, heaven help us in the future, seem to have a never ending conveyor belt of performers and writers to perform. I lost count how many were in this troupe of performers, I think 14 including 2 musicians,, shared the workload and most scenes were very short and snappy, and riddled with bad taste, just what the busy audience seemed to lap up.
This was their opening show of a short run, so I expected a few technical problems, forgotten lines or props, but nothing was evident throughout.
If laughter is the best medicine then these prospective doctors are keeping their options open.
