Asian Provocateurs: Rule Britannia! – Free

4 Stars ****

Sajeela Kershi and Yasmeen Khan are the two ladies behind this irreverant, well written and extremely funny sketch show that is interlinked with almost stand-up routines. They have a goal and in the course of an hour they are trying to achieve it.

The seems to be a real rappore between them. Their show gentle at times, less subtle at others pokes fun at stereotypes, talent shows, red-tape officialdom, Bollywood, news channels and even the News of the World scandal. These are just a few of the subjects lampooned by this dynamic duo.

In most sketch shows the standard of sketches tend to vary somewhat, but I feel that the quality on view here is consistanly high. No wonder they have done well in contests down south and come highly recommended by national newspapers!!

There has been a rumour of TV being interested in them. Who knows, you could be watching the heirs to the French and Saunders niche if luck goes their way.

As part of the Free Festival entry is free, but these ladies have to eat so please give generously to their collection bucket at the end of the show.
