Who Are We And What Are We Doing Inside Your Computer?

We are the University of Exeter's prestigious comedy society. We write and perform sketches, songs, stand up and improvised comedy.

The Exeter Revue invites all students interested in comedy writing and performance to get involved in shows throughout the year consisting of sketches, songs, stand up or improvisational scenes.

We meet regularly to write and discuss new ideas, and each year our aim is to take a sell-out revue show to the forefront of student comedy at The Edinburgh Fringe. Our debut Edinburgh show 'Sketchy At Best' sold out throughout our run and received praise from the critics.
