I Hate Myself So People Will Like Me (and Other Strategies for Success)

August 26, 2017 |

I feel distinctly uncomfortable about awarding stars to a show which was about a person’s struggle with their own sense of self-worth. The show is courageous, and what some pithy reviewer reduces it to with some asterisks is irrelevant.

George Egg: DIY Chef 4****

August 26, 2017 |

I can imagine this being an excellent show for a work night out, or it being booked for corporate social events: the subject matter has relatively wide appeal (everyone eats), and Mr Egg is an excellent performance chef. The fact … Read More

Pat Cahill: The Fisherman 3***

August 26, 2017 |

I really enjoyed the start of this show and would have been quite happy had in continued for an hour in the same vein. It didn’t, but what followed was also fun.

Pat, he explains, has done the feely … Read More

Arielle Dundas: Vulva Cupcake 2**

August 26, 2017 |

It’s nearly the end of the Fringe, and this performance certainly felt like it: drained and lacking in energy. It is an early afternoon slot, the audience was small, and the show is free to enter. All of which sound … Read More

Siân Docksey’s Totally Casual and Freewheeling Mystic Comedy: Lemon Torpedo 3***

August 26, 2017 |

Each of the words in the title to Sian’s show have some relevance to the show, and signify something of what the show will be. Specific meanings are probably best explained by Sian herself at the top of the show.

Aria Entertainment and Flying Music: The Toxic Avenger, 4 stars ****

August 26, 2017 |

If you mix Little Shop of Horrors with Bat Boy, Rocky Horror and Urinetown you will get a good idea of what this show is aiming for. It’s fast, funny and must have one of the highest production values of … Read More

Pindar Theatre Performers: Spring Awakening, 3 stars ***

August 26, 2017 |

Spring Awakening, love it or hate it, is always popular at the Fringe and this production was no exception.

Staging was good, using this small venue to its best advantage with the cast always staying on stage and becoming a … Read More

University of Manchester Musical Theatre Society: Godspell, 4 stars ****

August 26, 2017 |

Godspell is one of those shows where, if you don’t know what is going on, you’re better off not wondering why people dressed in raincoats and wellies are singing to ‘Jesus’ and just sit back and enjoy the music! And … Read More

Hello Humans 2**

August 25, 2017 |

Positive things about this show: Jay Cowle is enthusiastic and personable, and seemed to really enjoy performing. He never let his energy diminish throughout, despite the little that was coming back from the audience (who did their best to be … Read More

Caroline Mabey: Quetzals 3***

August 25, 2017 |

I chose to see this show because it has the word ‘quetzal’ in the title. Anyone who knows that word is going to be my kind of comic, irrespective of whether or not they know or care what the word … Read More
