The Oxford Imps

***

3 Stars

Take a troupe of six impro actors,  one MC and one keyboard player add an enthusiastic audience and some unlikely suggestions and the scene is set for this lunchtime production.

The Imps have been around on the Fringe for numerous years and they are always popular with the audiences. Impro, if done well, is a fantastically enjoyable experience, if done badly can be embarrassing. This show was neither, it was good most of the time and occasionally very good and just occasionally was ordinary, hence the middle of the road score given.

The games and scenarios delivered are all tried and tested, no real surprises forthcoming unfortunately.

Certainly this is a show that can vary from day to day and there are definitely many worse around on the Fringe. It is a fairly safe way to start off a long Fringe day and is totally child friendly so take the kids along as well.
