Mervyn Stutter’s Pick of the Fringe 4**** - One4Review
one4review | On 12, Aug 2018
It may have been going for twenty seven years now but this show fronted by the man in the pink suit, Mervyn Stutter, some things don’t change, but the suit has. This year there is a brand new 3 piece suit, ordered before the World Cup in case it is thought he is jumping on the bandwagon. The show is still rightly revered as the ‘must do’ show of this type by legions,
It is a tried and tested formula, but one that really works, Mervyn does the warm up with a few topical gags, no songs this year and generally making everybody feel at home and welcome. This complete it’s all systems go with seven acts that Merv and his team have discovered since the start of the Fringe.
What makes this show special is that it’s not just a few comics and some music. We had two comics a theatre piece, some circus skills, sketch comedy, a musical section, and of course opening up with the slightly scary cabaret star Bernie Deiter.
Another beauty of this show is that there are different acts each day so it is definitely something that can be seen more than once, that is if you can get a ticket of course.
