The privatisation and struggle of the NHS to do its work, despite budget crunches and government inaction, provides the backdrop or loose frame for this series of sketches. The MDs Comedy Revue Society’s youthful energy provides both its most problematic and unexpectedly-positive qualities: a number of misogynistic and immature jokes feel frightening when presented by this troupe of medical students and future medical professionals, but the company’s passionate defense and love of the NHS also rings clear.
