This Is Soap: The Improvised Soap Opera C Theatre 4 Star **** - One4Review
one4review | On 09, Aug 2013
Improv comedy has been around for a long time and each year I think surely it has had it’s day, but every year another bunch of young comics prove me wrong.
C Theatre have been running this show for numerous years too, and it is always a good example of what is good in the style.
The audience suggestions are turned into a ‘Soap’ daily as the six actors and a MC devise and deliver an episode in the space of an hour, and they do it every day.
The episode I saw took us into the world of Life Enders and the characters who inhabit the area. Situations are given to them as they play out a storyline using may od the devices that are integral to this genre.
Okay sometime the plots have wholes you could drive a bus through, but the laughs come thick and fast and yeas, the odd groan or too along the way.
If you are looking for a jovial way to start off the Fringe day why not give this a go and you don’t need to be a soap fan to do so either.
