Funny (2 stars)

This article is from 2009.

There’s a great idea behind Tim Nunn’s new play for Glasgow’s Reeling & Writhing about the army’s use of humour to interrogate suspects. Instead of tackling the clash of comedy and combat head on, however, the playwright gets distracted by his back-story about a comedian being drafted into the Middle East and finishes the play at the very point it should begin.

Assembly @ 7 Holyrood Road, 623 3030, until 30 Aug (not 18), 2pm & 6pm, £9.50–£11.50 (£7.50–£9.50).

A soldier, a terrorist and a comedian walk into a bar. The landlord says, 'What's this, a joke?' 'Funny' is based on real stories from secret places. The closer it gets to the truth the less you're going to believe.
