Edinburgh Fringe 2014 Review: FanFiction Comedy

‘FanFiction Comedy’ may be one of the most silly, nerdy and hilarious hours I have ever spent. Created for geeks, by geeks, the show sees the cast writing and performing several brand new stories for every performance, each involving beloved figures from popular fiction. From Harry Potter to ‘Life of Pi’, nothing is safe from their comedic talons: the night I attended we were treated to the moving tale ’12 Years an Oompa-Loompa’. The show presumes a certain level of familiarity with the material, and clearly delights in coupling the ridiculousness of fanboy delusions with a nerdy level of detail. There’s a little too much time wasted at the start and end of the show, but it’s still very smart and frequently hysterical.
