Finishing things off before Easter, the Revunions packed things out again at their old favourite, The Wardrobe Theatre, for sketches and stand up comedy. With a cast down to five, it was the turn of the fresher faces making waves at Revunions to make the funnies.
For their second MR5C slot of the year, the Revunions framed a jam-packed-with-funnies sketch show within the classroom, allowing for an abundance of great characters, hilarious subplots (although we are quick to say subplots sound too naff for Revunions) and allowing free reign when it came to any ideas the guys had. Selling well over three quarters of capacity across the three nights - and an especially packed final night - this was, and it sounds clichéd - not a show to have missed.
"Laugh on laugh...a showcase of some of Bristol's bigger and better comedic talents" ★★★★
TRAILER RIDE RIGHT HERE:
For another year, the Bristol Revunions were invited to the Cambridge ADC, along with the Leeds Tealights, to perform sketches, some more sketches and then some other sketches. Taking to the stage for a twenty set the Revunions flew their way through 14 sketches with all the usual irreverence, anarchy and hilarity.
"so enjoyable to watch"
Back in their favourite haunt, the Bristol Revunions took over the Wardrobe Theatre for an evening of sketch and stand up comedy. With fresh funnies, they packed out the theatre in a show that was not to be missed.
In November 2012, Bristol Revunions were back to their hilarious best with their first show of the year. Over a three night run, they took you through adverts for the North, the resultant sketch after Calendar Girls underwent a sex change and a very weird shop assistant indeed. Irreverence and madness basically.

"stomach-crampingly funny lines make this a triumph" ★★★★
The legend goes that The Footlights played Bristol once before. It too was on the historic stage of the Winston, and the rumour is that the audience laughed so much that the entire building needed a complete refurbishment as a result.
