Rob Deering :- Beat This - One4Review
Okay, let’s start with a question. Do you like comedy, music and quiz panel games? You do? Then this is the place to be.
MC for the show is comic and musician Rob Deering and this cheery chappy is straight into proceedings explaining the concept of the game show and electing a scorekeeper for the evening and introducing two teams of comedians, on this night Nick Helm and Steve Hall played against Isy Suttie and Tom Price.
A series of music based rounds are played over the next hour with Deering keeping control(?) and playing the music live on his guitar.
Maybe it was the teams on the night or maybe it is normally the same but both were surprisingly competitive for this light hearted fun packed show, and cheating by getting audience help was very much to the fore.
This certainly was an excellent way to spend the last hour of my Fringe day, and possibly I may return again before the Fringe.
