Edinburgh Review: WitTank

Sharp suits, smooth performers. The well-presented comic quartet that is WitTank put on a polished, energetic but erratically-written hour of comedy in this zany sketch show. The four of them have great confidence and natural chemistry, working slickly together to keep the laughs coming. The performances are usually quite a way ahead of the quality of the writing, however, with many sketches relying more on the relentless energy of the cast than on a witty script to deliver the laughs. This said, they are fun to watch, and they had the audience howling throughout most of the show. Worth seeing, if only for the ball-breakingly funny Lord Nelson sketch.

3/5
