NewsRevue 2019 Theatre & Performing Arts

newsrevue_2019


Celebrating its 40th anniversary, NewsRevue is back with a flawlessly delivered comedy round-up of this year’s news.

From a royal car crash to a political car crash, it’s been quite a year and it isn’t only Brexit dominating our headlines! We’ve witnessed unlikely duets from Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga to President Trump and Kim Jong-un, the birth of another Royal Baby and the end of the world (or is it?) in the Avengers. There’s a lot to fit into an hour.

With 100% new content and an exciting new cast, politicians and celebrities alike come under fire in a turbo-charged barrage of bladder-threateningly funny songs and scathing sketches brimming with punchlines. The four outstanding performers transform the madness of the world around us into an all-singing, all-dancing mega-mix of buffoonery. NewsRevue's ever-original witty takes on current affairs have made it a Guinness World Record breaker, Fringe First winner and a Perrier finalist.

With director Samuel Hopkins once again at the helm and an onstage Musical Director, this show offers the perfect antidote to the apocalypse that is unfolding around us.

Producer Emma Taylor comments, In the midst of the ‘Mayhem' I can’t think of a better reminder from John Cleese that ‘laughter is a force for democracy.’ Turn off the news and watch NewsRevue instead!

The show is acknowledged as a highly successful springboard for the incredible talents involved, many of whom started their careers on the show before scaling great comedy heights. Described by Chortle as ‘a rite of passage for all comedy new-comers’ previous alumni include: Gemma Whelan, Sara Pascoe, Zoe Lyons, Bridget Christie, Pippa Evans, Alistair McGowan, Bill Bailey, Reece Shearsmith and Mark Gatiss.
