Jarlath Regan – Relax The Cax

August 8, 2008 |

I have seen snippets of Jarlath Regan before and was able to find some time to see his full show. Certainly not as manic as many of his countrymen his humour is more laid back. If it had not … Read More

Markus Birdman:- Sympathy for the Devil 

August 8, 2008 |

Despite of having a father and an uncle who are both vicars, Mr Birdman is a totally committed atheist, hence the title of his show this year. Well, he doesn’t exactly have sympathy for the devil, more that he … Read More

The Reduced Edinburgh Fringe Impro Show

August 8, 2008 |

The mental strength it takes to produce good improvisational comedy always astounds me.  Having grown up on ‘Whose Line Is It Anyway’ I was always impressed at how the assorted members could produce great comedy out of thin air.  … Read More

I think it now common knowledge that Canal Café Theatres News revue is as much part of the Edinburgh scene in August as the Tattoo and is very nearly as popular, certainly far more so with this reviewer. For … Read More

Russell Kane: Gaping Flaws 

August 8, 2008 |

What did I know about Russell Kane before going to see his show? He is relatively small, cute looking, Geoff has rated his comedy for some time and he appears on TV between episodes of CIS. Russell’s 2008 Fringe … Read More

Will and Greg a Sketch Show

August 8, 2008 |

Hidden round the back of the Pleasance, in an ordinary looking Portakabin, is some of the finest comedy you will witness this festival.  Will and Greg were part of Ugly Kid last year, a show which was brilliant in … Read More
