EDINBURGH 2017: BWW Review: SISTERS: WHITE NOISE, Pleasance Courtyard

Sisters: White Noise is a laugh-a-minute show as Christy White-Spunner and Mark Jones take us through a series of sketches and routines that are timed and pitched beautifully.

The premise is that Christy and Mark are utilising various aspects of social media in their attempts to get famous as quickly as possible. Having attempted to gain an audience through facetiming random numbers they plan to livestream this show to millions of waiting fans around the world. Their inevitable failure to build such a huge fanbase so quickly leads to some infighting - with Christy becoming more and more agitated at what he perceives to be Mark's failure. They also set up the idea that they have set up a KickStarter campaign to fund the show so have to jump through some hoops for their financial backers between sketches.

Many of their sketches are quite dark with this talented double act repeatedly testing the boundaries of taste and acceptability without ever offending. The show includes some audience interaction with members of the front row being pulled out to take part but they are never the butt of the joke with Christy, Mark or both always taking the brunt. An incredible narrated sketch at the end is among the best I have ever seen at the fringe.

A really original, slick debut from a fantastically dark sketch duo with a bright future.
