Edinburgh Fringe 2010
Sketch comedy is a notoriously savage and unforgiving genre. Get it right, and you create brilliant, fantastic moments of comedy. Get it even slightly wrong, and you crash and burn. Horribly. There’s no middle ground. It would seem that Lady Garden have yet to fail, and in fact, year by year, they’re simply getting better and better.
Keeping in with the theme of their 2010 show, we won’t spoil any of the jokes. So that means we can’t go into detail about an absolutely sublime opening gag, which is particularly good for returning fans, but by no means alienates the uninitiated (Lady Virgins?). We also don’t want to spoil the jokes that have a Russian accent, and it would seem churlish to go into details about a sketch that appears to feature a hymn as written by Richard Dawkins.
