Rob Deering’s Beat This 4 Stars **** - One4Review
one4review | On 07, Aug 2013
Rob Deering is as most people know a very funny comic who also is an accomplished Guitarist and is an absolute wizard with mixing pedals, live looping and effects so it is a natural choice for him to combine the talents and host this late night fun music quiz.
The format is two teams of comedians drawn from across the Fringe going head to head through a number of rounds devised by Deering, and all the music played live by him and his trusty axe.
For what is in essence a fun quiz seems to draw out the competitive side to the comics on view on the night namely Joe Heenan, Harriet Dyer, Phil Nichol and Chris Martin, no not the Coldplay frontman but the up for it audience was itching to get involved too.
So if you are into comedy and music and I have to plead guilty as charged then this is a must see show and with a different line-up each night there is always the opportunity to go more than once. I certainly will return as soon as I get a chance.
