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?

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!
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.
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.
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"
12th February 2014
We made the journey eastwards once again to show the county what we could do. Together with the Leeds Tealights and the Cambridge Footlights (obviously), we performed some blinders, like the infamous 'Tilly'.
"Oozing talent" 7/10
13th November 2013
To a packed out crowd, The Revunions rose again at their favourite comedy haunt. In collaboration with The Bristol Improv, the two groups brought the house down with raucous new material.
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.
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"
