Edinburgh Review: The Beta Males Picnic

Fizzing with energy and a manic inventiveness, ‘The Beta Males Picnic’ is a delightfully daft way to get your lunchtime fix of comedy. This comedy quartet play off the crowd and each other with natural ease, attacking the well-constructed sketches with a fearless confidence and great comic timing. Their surreal brand of slapstick has been practised and polished until it shines, and their use of recurring sketches, especially the gloriously funny moon-landing ones, and a short comic play at the end gives the show a sense of structure that it might otherwise lack. Fresh, fun, and free to see, there’s really no reason not to go and enjoy ‘The Beta Males Picnic’.

4/5
