Based on the classic TV gameshow, Dolly Diamond's Fringe version Bl*nkety Bl*nks relies on no less quick thinking and wit.

Diamond pits two audience members against each other with several guest comedians supplying the games incomplete statements, or blanks, for them to fill in. It gets competitive, with prizes on the line. 

Tonight, Andrew Silverwood from Late Night Panel Show and Kel Balnaves from You Bewdy stand out, especially when firing out the most jokes while revealing the answers.

The snappy back and forth between contestants, the panel and Diamond transform the most mundane answers into great comedy. And Diamond also enjoys some solo time in the spotlight, showing off her singing talents in-between rounds.

Tonight's show seems to end a little abruptly, which is unfortunate as some real momentum had been created through Diamond's sharp banter and gags, with everyone wishing to continue enjoying the great atmosphere created with another round.
