Move over, gramps—comedy’s in video form now!
I said move over, gramps!
Finally, my days of submitting to theatre critics’ bizarre sexual fantasies in return for the retraction of negative reviews are over! From now on, I’ll do it just to hear the laughter of children.
“The Curse of the Oxford Revue is an hour of comic genius” — Daily Info (full review)
So, you big hunky web person you, some of my friends are doing this show later, wanna see it? Better get a ticket now, these things are going like hotcakes!

No free hotcakes.
CHILLS! THRILLS! KRILLS! BILLS! And that’s just the pre-show dinner1.
An intrepid young reporter is sent to a sleepy English village to interview a local celebrity — but what she uncovers is much more relevant to the plot.
Find out why The New Current called us “the best student sketch group by for [sic] in the UK!” Then please tell us.

Hi, I’m O. X. Ford “R” Ev-Ue, webmaster and unforgivably handsome maverick ghost hunter. When I’m not waiting hand and foot on the puling digital presence of unknown comedians, I’m doing important things with my life, like sykdiving, ignoring SpellCheck, and forcing the government to pay taxes to ME. So while you’re waiting for yours truly to eradicate the last sweaty bugs from this public health hazard of a web site, you’d best sit back and relax, because I just might take my sweet time getting around to it.
It will probably help if you imagine a cartoon of a cute puppy with an unplugged ethernet cable in its mouth and a caption reading “Technical Difficulties,” or maybe something slightly racier like “We Really ‘Pooched’ This One.” Stay tuned!
Guess what, guys!
No, I’m not actually a man. Guess again.
Erm… no, not even 20%.
This game isn’t fun anymore.
WE GOT A FIVE STAR REVIEW! The New Current came to see us yesterday and although we assume the review slipped past several proof-readers on its way to the intraweb, there were some pretty great things said.
“The Oxford Revue stand out for their tightness, clear direction from Jessica Palmarozza, wild sketches and a script so fine it will make you feel slightly resentful towards them.”
“The chemistry between the whole revue seems tight and they play off each other well.”
“This group is no different, their fringe show is well written and performed…and without any doubt they are the best student sketch group by far in the UK!”
Join the Oxford Revue for a completely FREE hour of stand-up, sketches, and special guests every day – including The Beta Males, Totally Tom and Sheeps.
Fans of comedy and lunch rejoice! Comedy-based lunchtimes just got free.

My God. It’s here. More here than over there, definitely. And where are we anyway? Oxford Revue bring their strongest hour of sketches yet to the Underbelly for a month-long run more fiery than a Mediterranean religious conflict. It’s enough to make you want to go and pay a certain amount of money to go and sit in a specific room and watch it for an hour.
For Edinburgh and non-Edinburgh-goers – keep your digi-eyes peeled on this website for podcasts, video, and cheeky updates of the comic variety. Yeah!!1!

Oxford Revue rock up in London, the city previously made famous by Dick Whittington, The Queen and cholera, preparing material for their month-long run at the Edinburgh Fringe. Last chance to catch the current line-up in England before we deep-fry the Mars bars of mirth for a mixed-nationality audience.
