Review by Steve Bennett

Every year, Edinburgh proves a magnet for scores of deluded, talentless acts with half an idea keen inflict their painful 'comedy' on a long-suffering audience.

Yet most would be hard pressed to create such a dismally humourless, self-satisfied shambles of a show than Cyderdelic.

Clearly believing that a West Country accent is pant-wettingly funny in itself, these bogus eco-warriors shout their way through an agonisingly tedious hour of low-grade character comedy.

And while they've clearly gone to some effort to create films and raps to accompany their green manifesto, they somehow seem to have forgotten to create any jokes.

Avoid this brain-numbingly witless act like you would the dreary Glasonbury hippies they aim to parody - there are more laughs in a threshing accident.
