Revunions & Friends Too
9th-13th March 2015
More friends (aren't we friendly?!) - this time ones that are fully grown up.
MONDAY & TUESDAY: SAM & TOM
A new partnership between us and this anarchic double-hander made up of Tom Burgess ("blankly sweet... coldly psychotic" - Chortle) and Sam Nicoresti ("u suck" - Lucas Bird, Youtube). We had a great time, did you?
WEDNESDAY & THURSDAY: TWINS
Joining us once again, Annie McGrath and Jack Barry (completely identical twins) did some new stuff that killed.
FRIDAY: LOLLY ADEFOPE AND MAT EWINS
Ex-Revunion Mat Ewins and character comedian Lolly Adefope joined forces to give you the audience a massive hilarious smack in the face. That bruise cleared up yet?

REVUNIONS & FRIENDS!
2nd March 2015
The best student comedy all together in one room. Packing out the newly refurbished Winston Theatre at the Students' Union to bear witness to the start of a great tradition. Oxford Revue and Cambridge Footlights graced our stage with their comedy wares, and a great night was had by all.
4th February 2015
The return leg of a Bristol-Bath exchange, we welcomed The Idle Playthings into the warmth of the Wardrobe for a night of the best sketches the West Country had to offer.
With support from local stand-ups Martin Pilgrim and Micky Baker, and student stand-up Tom Lucy, it was really quite a nice way to start the 2015 season!
Bristol Revunions in: 3D
26th-29th November 2014
So we finished the term with a whole big show full of brand new material, and it wasn't in 3D any more than real life is in 3D. Equally it wasn't about a safari adventure. It was about us as talent show contestants. We don't even know if that's true anymore actually... We've gone a bit mad to be honest.
Here's what Andy Price, of Chaplin Moustache fame, thought of our little comedy hoedown.
28th October 2014
Invited by the legends themselves, we travelled deep into the heart of Clifton to perform brand new comedy to a whole big bunch of students.
August and Everything Before
1st October 2014
The crème de la crème. The cream of the cream. August and Everything Before presented the highlights of Revunions' 2013/14 season in a single, dairy-free show.
Whether a richly seasoned Revunions fan or new to the University of Bristol, we welcomed everyone along to our first show of the year to give a taste of just what we do.
Had the audience in fits of laughter ... ★★★★
Fantastically talented ... I would see them again in a heartbeat
2nd April 2014
Another evening of laughter-filled entertainment at The Warbrobe Theatre, and once again with our friends (comedy gets boring when you're alone)!
Bristol Revunions and Friends
25th-28th February 2014
After sell-out shows at their favourite Bristol haunt, the Wardrobe Theatre, the Revunions went their most ambitious yet: they went and invited some of their "comedy pals" who also happened to be (almost, nearly) semi-professional comedians!
Four nights of sell-out shows, great audience receptions and fantastic entertainment seemed a bit out their reach so they just did the best they could*
* ironic comedy phrasing to mean the opposite.
25th-26th - Twins (Annie McGrath and Jack Barry)
"undeniable comic chemistry, bouncing off each other with a genuine ease and charm that many double-acts will struggle to emulate" (fest)
27th - Ellie White
(featured on the BBC's 'Fresh from the Fringe', 2013)
28th - Ollie Jones-Evans
"absolutely hysterical physicality" (Broadway Baby)
"As usual, Revunions have produced an excellent show" ★★★★
"energetic and engaging from start to finish"
Standing Up and Saying Words
22nd January 2014
Nothing to say but sell-out, hot and sweaty stand-up comedy from the best of Revs plus long time associate Martin Pilgrim with his geniusly funny friend Alice Matthews.
