    Hey, the other day somebody suggested I try out for Durham Review or something along those lines (apparently a stand-up comedy thing) next time there are auditions. I was wondering if anybody knew of a website or anything where I can find more information about it? I can't find anything on the DSU site.

    Cheers

    They'rwe basically like the Footlights, however I wasn't impressed with their sketches at the DUCK Chaerity Comedy thing last year as they had plagirised about half of them, and the rest weren't funny, so if you do work for them, please make them good!

    There's also WitTank. Though I'm sure the auditions must have already happened. Maybe they're happy with whom they've got.

    They do annual auditions (I auditioned myself) but they're damn hard to get into as they usually only have a few spaces, if that.

    I saw them during freshers' week and thought they were really cracking.

    Their producer last year asked me to join, but I had too much on.

    I'm pretty ******* hilarious, tbh.

    I saw one of the candidates looking rather hapless and lost right outside the place on my way to lunch or something the other day...

    Wittank is amazing. The Durham Revue were poor this year.

    Heh, a friend came back from Edinburgh raving about a comedy group, we shortly realised it was WitTank...
    As a result, he is now intending to come to Durham more often.

    WitTank are awesome. I was working at the edinburgh fringe this yr and their show was a firm favourite amongst us overworked volunteers

    Edit: an anonymous neg rep for that? Coward.

    Last night I saw Naz (the funniest WitTank guy who always shoves a Mexican accent in somewhere) and I was like OMG CELEB. It's so lame. Does anyone else do this?
