Guinness World Record-breaking, Fringe First-winning, Perrier finalist, news and popular culture based song and sketch show NewsRevue is proud to introduce the first team of 2017.
From Trump’s inauguration to Theresa May’s Brexit and everything in between, the current team are being served material on a political plate.
With over 300 applicants each time the show is re-cast every 6 weeks, the lucky 4 have survived and excelled in a legendary audition process. The show is acknowledged as a highly successful springboard for all the incredible talents involved, many of whom started their careers on NewsRevue before scaling great comedy heights. Described by Chortle as ‘a rite of passage for all comedy new-comers’.
Roann McCloskey’s tragicomic impression of Hillary singing Send in the Clown is not to be missed (note, we were doing it before Barbara!), Scott Jones’s Putin is pitch perfect in Putin and the Beast, Sam Holland does a fantastic Borgia-esque rendition of the US president and Pernilla Holland, one of Funny Women’s ‘one to watch’ of 2016 is a fabulous all round comedian.
Previous alumni include: Rory Bremner, Reece Shearsmith, Alistair McGowan, Bill Bailey, Michelle Collins, Zoe Lyons, Nick Helm, Cariad Lloyd, Bridget Christie, Pippa Evans, Gemma Arrowsmith, Sarah- Louise Young, Lorna Watson, Gemma Whelan, Luke Toulson and Sara Pascoe.
NewsRevue plays at Canal Café Theatre 19 January – 26 February 2017
