On Tour (We Live Here) 3 Star ***

August 28, 2013 |

It can’t be easy being three young Edinburgh based comics watching their city being invaded by a load of comedians from all over the world. It can’t be any easier if you are in a somewhat obscure venue and do … Read More

The Oxford Imps 1 Star *

August 28, 2013 |

I have usually seen the Oxford Imps Fringe shows over the years and while they are always full of energy, some good ideas and pretty decent improv actors and are well supported some shows are better than others.

I thought … Read More

Hal Cruttenden: Tough Luvvie 4 Star ****

August 28, 2013 |


Having had a sell-out run at last year’s Fringe and a very successful tour of the same, Hal Cruttenden brings it ‘home’ to Edinburgh, albeit in a much bigger room this time.

Cruttenden has had recent appearances on TV’s … Read More

Danny Ward – Pressure Point 3 Star ***

August 25, 2013 |

I suppose having to do a Fringe show while wired up to a tens machine to ease his back pain is something that no performers would want to add to the pressure he already has. Throw in being technically homeless, … Read More

Chris Ramsey: Feeling Lucky 5 Star *****

That a difference a year makes. Last year South Shields born funny man Chris Ramsey was playing in a small venue okay selling out every day, and now his much extended tour rolls into Edinburgh to the same sell-outs but … Read More

Mary Bourke: Muffragette 4 Star ****

August 24, 2013 |

Devoting a show to feminism is something of a gamble. Just use the word and it could be a turn-off, but Mary Bourke’s brand of very funny and intelligent humour in exploring this theme is a winner. Biting observations delivered … Read More

Simon Donald – Butch Straight Poof 4 Star ****

August 22, 2013 |

I seriously didn’t have any idea what to expect prior to attending the show, the title made me a little confused as to what I was going to be entertained with for an hour.

Geordie Simon Donald is a blokey … Read More

Jason Manford – First World Problems 5 Star *****

August 22, 2013 |

Jason Manford has brought his First World Problems to the Fringe playing a short 5 date segment at the prestigious Edinburgh International Conference Centre. The setting maybe grand but there is no airs or graces about Manford. No entry music, … Read More
