Best of Edinburgh Comedy 2007- The Showcase Show - One4Review

What is the attraction of all these ‘Best of’ shows that seem to increase every Fringe? Well I suppose it is a win-win situation. Usually they are in relatively off peak times so the space gets used, it gives a chance for the performers to showcase their full shows and it gives the public a chance to see a sample of these shows that they may be tempted to see. Easy then, but should that be win-win-win? Certainly with this  one that is the case. Four acts and a compere in the space of an hour! Can’t be bad. The line up I saw was compered by Raymond Mearns performing at The Stand Comedy Club, Duncan Oakley on at C Soco Urban Garden, Robin Ince and His Book Club at Assembly, Yianni at The White Horse and finally the excellent Micky Flannigan who is performing at The Pleasance. Each act did their job well, the packed house enjoyed each artist and it is certainly good value for money. The lineup will change daily so it would be possible to go more than once and see a different how each time. ****
