Old Folks Telling Jokes 2**

August 22, 2014 |

I really don’t know what to make of this show. A couple of minutes into her set, Charmian Hughes (very good, as attested elsewhere on this site) asked if ‘Lewis did this to you?’ Yes. He did. I’m … Read More

Paco Erhard: Worst. German. Ever. – 4****

August 22, 2014 |

Paco Erhard was, while in Berlin, heckled with the accusation of being the worst German ever, an accolade which most can agree already has the odd hot contender.

On stage he comes across as a very likeable German. He’s not … Read More

Thinking Standing Up – 2**

August 22, 2014 |

This show was not a bad show. As a line up of a few comics, I have seen much worse. However, it was not by any stretch of the imagination, what the title, and information suggested it would be.

This … Read More

The News at Kate: Leftie Cock Womble – 5*****

August 22, 2014 |

As someone with socialist leanings myself, Kate Smurthwaite’s show title was always going to appeal, though I remain unsure – as does she – as to exactly what a Cock Womble is, and whether those who called her this, during … Read More

Gary Colman: ChUNT – The Verb to Grumble – 3***

August 22, 2014 |

The start of this show is low key, and followed by the sad topic of an ill dog. During this tale, Colman is disrupted by someone leaving, very slowly. Despite this rudeness, Colman milks every possible bit of comedy out … Read More

The Evolution Will Be Televised 5*****

August 21, 2014 |

Other performers take note: an audience’s response is linked to how well you fulfil expectations. Ms Smurthwaite told us at the start that it wasn’t all going to be funny, but if it wasn’t, we’d be learning. Expert … Read More

A Game of Loners – 3***

August 21, 2014 |

Three of the brighter up and coming comedians of the Scottish scene have joined together to stage an hour of comedy as part of The Scottish Comedy Festival at The Beehive Inn.

Russell Grant -Strictly Edinburgh 4****

August 21, 2014 | 1

I guess there can’t be many people in the UK who are not aware of larger than life TV personality Russell Grant but if most of them are like me I don’t know so much of him away from the … Read More

Damian Clark: Go Ahead, Make My Damo – 4****

August 21, 2014 |

The title of this show doesn’t do it justice, as it sounds like the performer will have a fight on his hands. Yet actually, the nearest thing to violence was the constant pelting us with jokes that hit the spot, … Read More

Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre – And So Am I – 4****

August 21, 2014 | 1

A man in the queue said “It doesn’t feel like I’ve done the Fringe unless I’ve seen the Socks,” and I’m inclined to agree with him. A fringe institution, the Socks have that spark of something different that always feels … Read More
