Election! Wins Our Vote

Gillian Davies reviews the St Andrews Revue’s latest performance.

For those of you looking for a short reprieve from the stress of deadlines as second semester flies by, experts do say that laughter is the best medicine. I couldn’t agree more after taking the time to watch the ever-amusing St Andrews Revue perform their sketch comedy show Election!

If you fancy Brazilian tunes, flashing lights, and endless laughs, the Barron Theatre was certainly the place to be last week. The cast of five did not disappoint as they moved seamlessly between sketches. From the obscene to the slightly emotional, there was a sketch that catered to everyone’s likings. Taking inspiration from classical rhymes and jingles, audiences were exposed to the woes of the shepherd in the modern age, as well as the terrors experienced by otherwise inanimate objects.

It was during a sketch inspired by Oliver Twist that I nearly started crying with laughter, as a true literary plot twist left the audience howling with laughter. Perhaps the only sketch that had all the makings of a masterpiece but missed the mark was an interview of “Mr. Politician” by the BBC, which presented the perfect opportunity to capitalise on the notorious character of John Humphrys when interviewing guests. However, the overall success of each sketch, as noted by the raucous response from the crowd, paints the show in phenomenal light overall.

While the show itself centred around the drama of elections and the controversies which persist in terms of diversity and gender, the cast of the Revue depicted the fairly frequent scenarios we ourselves bear witness to with a dash of hilarity. The show had everyone breaking out in laughter, using sketches rooted in Harry Potter references, the horrors of the c-word, and the troubles of finding oneself in the world of Where’s Wally. The occasional Nazi joke and the inherent separation between cheekiness and terrorism were, while not always tasteful, highly amusing, as a comedy show should be.

The creativity exhibited by the cast of Election! was incredible, as sketches crossed various categories and covered topics that often require a better sense of humour in this day and age. Congratulations to these comedic minds on a fantastic performance overall. If you were unable to catch the St Andrew Revue this time around, keep an eye out for news of their shows that are sure to bring even more laughter at this year’s On the Rocks Festival.

  29. ok glad you are taking her to the vet. this will save my usual speal. depending on how long the hip has been out, you are looking at three main options, if the hip is in fact out. first an x-ray will have to be taken to prove this.. . your vet may be able to “pop” the hip back in and with some care at home to keep her quiet, you may not have any trouble.. . if the hip has been out too long to easliy “pop” back in then an ehmer sling will be applied. this will keep the leg pinched up toward the body so she can’t use the leg until the muscles tighten and allow the hip to stay in place.. . worst case she will need an FHO this is where the femoral head of the femur is removed. it is not a rare sugery. it’s been done several times and your vet should be able to do it or refer you to someone who can. aside from aftercare of being careful of the site and keeping her calm, most dogs do very well. she may always have a limp, but she’s a pup and would adjust very well. often this is better than a hip replacement or anything else like that fho dogs tend to not have arthritis issues later on from the surgery.. . good luck and hope everything just “pops” into place tomorrow.
