Mervyn Stutter’s Pick of the Fringe 4**** - One4Review
one4review | On 15, Aug 2019
It may have been going for twenty seven years, this being the 28th, now but this show fronted by that man Mervyn Stutter, still in his pink suit is still rightly revered as the ‘must do’ show of this type by legions, and you can’t argue with the facts
It is a tried and tested formula, but one that really works, Unlike most years when Mervyn does the warm up with a few topical gags, a couple of his trademark pastiche songs and generally making everybody feel at home, due to an injury to his hand and the fact that the show was rather late in going up, his bit was severely abbreviated., so it’s all systems go with seven acts that Merv and his team have discovered over the first few days of the Fringe so far.
What makes this show special is that it’s not just a few comics and some music, no, of course there are comics but also theatre sections, on the show I saw there was also dance pieces as well
Another beauty of this show is that there are different acts each day so it is definitely a show that can be seen more than once, that is if you can get a ticket of course, they can be hard to come by.
