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.

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

John-Luke Roberts: Look on My Works, Ye Mighty, and Despair! (All in Caps) 4****

August 25, 2017 |

Should anyone wish to know, I am instructed to inform people that this show was ‘significant’. This means: ‘sufficiently great or important to be worthy of attention; noteworthy’. I am willing to grant that it is a sufficiently great show … Read More

Nick Cody – On Fire 4***

August 24, 2017 |

I think if central casting wanted to cast a perceived 30 year old Aussie male then they wouldn’t have to look far past Nick Cody for the perfect specimen. Cody fits the bill perfectly. He is 30. Check, He loves … Read More

Josh Pugh A Boy Named Pugh 4****

August 24, 2017 |

The name of the show is slightly ironic as halfway through the show Josh informs us that “Josh Pugh isn’t even my real name”. He thought that it didn’t quite pack the celebrity punch. “No, my real name is Johnny … Read More
