Here’s a two-handed sketch group with a welcome twist: they’re just a little bit older than the typical fresh-faced hopefuls, and there’s a matching maturity to their material.  Teakshow’s comedy is gently twisted, too, with a trademark dark surrealism which elegantly balances their ingenious concepts and some very funny lines.

When FringeGuru’s Richard Stamp reviewed Teakshow at the Buxton Fringe last year, he praised their clever ideas and well-drawn characters; the humour was racy, he wrote, but never descended to crude shock.  It was a polished, confident show, which often passed over a sledgehammer punchline in favour of a more subtle reward.

The format’s perhaps a little dated, but the pace is fast, and the comedy still felt fresh and new.  They’ll be trying new material in Brighton, and we clearly can’t promise an instant hit – but if you’re up for a late-night MindWarp, we think you’ll be in safe hands.
