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
30th July - 24th August 2014
A sketch show of the film of the video of the film of the sketch show. The Revunions were at it again (and at the same time) - gracing Edinburgh with short comedy plays in a comfortable live movie format.
fantastically strange ... a delight to watch ... highly entertaining ... ★★★★
2nd-22nd August 2014
An hour of live pre-recorded sketch comedy that we had gone and wrote. Completely free, and with free sweets to boot, we flyered this show all day every day knowing that it was really bleedin' good fun, and the people that came and watched it might have thought so too!
6th & 20th August 2014
For the second year running, the country's best University sketch troupes came together, but this time they did it twice!
Compered by Lolly Adefope, proceeds from the shows raised over £500 for The Rock Trust, an Edinburgh Youth Homelessness Charity.
2nd October 2013
Highlight reel of our two Edinburgh Festival Fringe shows at our favourite Wardrobe Theatre. Not much too sexy to say about it. It went well and that, people came and that, we did good and that.
As part of the Bristol Revunions (NASTa Comedy Awards Winner May '13) double billing at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe they served up a lightning speed hour of fresh double cream sketch comedy that didn't leave the audience alone until they had stopped laughing and wiped the sweat from their faces.
Following their first dipping into the PBH Free Fringe at the 2012 Fringe, the Revunions doubled their stay this time round, making the Dram House their home for the whole month, with double the goodness.
The Dram House, Niddry Street, 3rd-24th August (not 13th)
"the energy is catching, and the show genuinely enjoyable" ★★★
Second on this award winning group's bill at the Fringe was their show Elegant Nymphs. The dramatic story of four hardy Nymphs in search of the fame, dignity and literary respect they previously felt they deserved all their insignificant lives. Needless to say, no was ever going to care about them so people just laughed. A lot. But that was good because it was comedy show. You really thought all that stuff earlier was meant to serious? BAH!
For their 5th consecutive year at the Fringe, the Revunions put on a stormer and there was also a storm.
Just the Tonic at the Caves, Just Up the Stairs, Cowgate, 1st-25th August (not 13th)
"they can and will have sex with you without you knowing" ★★★★
"bursting with energy, wit and genius comic timing" ★★★
During their run at the Fringe 2013, The Revunions were invited to take part in an evening of the UK's best University sketch troupes in an informal sketch off. Incl: The Leeds Tealights, The Cambridge Footlights, The Oxford Revue, The Durham Revue and the UCL Graters.
In an impressive display of talent the Revunions were runners-up to the eventual winners of the evening, and our long-time friends, the Leeds Tealights.

(The U-Review- 2011)
"The writing was some of the most impressive I think I've ever heard... Nothing short of incredible"
(Ed Fringe Review- 2011)
