Some sketches land well, others needed a bit more developed characters. An excellent sorting hat sketch, and memoir by noo noo!

Takes guts for youngsters to stand in front of an audience and try and make them laugh for an hour. Admire them for that. Altogether highly entertaining and amusing.

On various occasions I was left heaving with laughter after a new sketch had been performed. One of the best sketch shows I have seen no doubt about it. From showing a more realistic take on West Side story, to listening to the depths of one of the Teletubbies most profound characters struggles throughout their life, to the creativity behind bringing two audience members to create sounds and bringing another sketch to life, I was blown away. If you are looking for a sketch show throughout the fringe, there is nowhere else that will top this one. Well done to all involved.

Hilarious sketches and upbeat atmosphere - immensely enjoyable! There were slick transitions between scenes and a fast pace delivery keeping the audience’s wits about them! If you’re into sketch comedy, this is one of the best around!

Brilliantly funny sketches, with great musical transitions that added to the comedy, this troupe never ceases to entertain. The energy is dazzling from start to finish as they draw you into their wacky world. Amazing show, get tickets while you can!

The annual pilgrimage to The Durham Review was rewarded with a lively and wonderfully funny show from the new crop of Durham Uni funsters. The hour flew past so quickly; laughs aplenty. Great venue too.

Theatre Weekly (4/5 stars) 100 days ago

Unnatural Disaster is a superb example of ensemble comedy, with the cast all taking an equal share of the gags and punchlines, in their white shirts and braces they dash on and off stage with unbridled energy, churning out sketch after hilarious sketch. The downside to the Fringe of course is that often we don’t know who we are watching, and I’m sure many audience members would like to know, as there’s a very real chance that some of these talented comedians will go on to be the next Ed Gamble, or Nish Kumar (both previous members of the Durham Revue).
