Footlights in ‘Good for You’

4 stars


It was pretty much a full house for this afternoon sketch show performed by the Footlights.  Obviously their name precedes them and, if this show is anything to go by, these five performers are destined to follow in the footsteps of previous successful alumni.

The sketches zipped along at a fair old pace, each eliciting a good response from the assembled throng.  The material on show included several nicely observed pieces on modern culture as well as the odd surreal twist.  The recurring character of Chad Slazenger was warmly welcomed by the crowd, and as I left the venue I could hear a number of audience members repeating the characters catchphrase, so it appears the group are onto a winner there.

The pace was well sustained over the hour and I would be hard pushed to find a duff sketch amongst the number performed.  A solidly entertaining show which showcased rising comedy talent.
