Michael Redmond: I Wrote a Joke in 1987 3***

August 17, 2017 |

It’s really hard to review a show when the style of comedy is just not one that fits into the comedy space in your brain. Michael Redmond is very good at what he does, it’s just I wouldn’t normally choose … Read More

Ben Target’s Orangeade 4****

August 17, 2017 |

If Mr Target ever decides comedy isn’t his thing anymore, he could forge an excellent career as a corporate team-builder. His subtle, unassuming manner and methods mean that within fifteen minutes of the show starting you’re happily sat with your … Read More

Magnificent Bastard Productions: Shit-Faced Showtime: The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, 5 stars *****

August 16, 2017 |

This was brilliant! It’s not quite ‘The Wizard of Oz’ but has the gist of the plot including songs from Wicked and The Wiz for example. The small cast play all the characters, the musician and the host but the … Read More

Bernie Keith Life Without Sat Nav 3***

August 16, 2017 |

Bernie’s BBC radio background should give him an edge when it comes to delivering his material, but I recommend he drop in the odd un-radio like pause between gags. We didn’t really get a chance to laugh before the next … Read More

Alice Fraser “Empire”. 5*****

August 16, 2017 |

Deep in a bunker in Edinburgh’s old town one can find the lair of Carey Marx and his new best friend his trusty guitar and the two are in harmony playing entry music as his crowd pile in. Since last … Read More

Twayne Mayne Black Girl 4****

August 16, 2017 |

Twayne Mayne is one of the very few, black female stand-up comedians at the Fringe this year, in fact she thinks she may be the only one, a sad reflection on the comedy world where middle class white male comic … Read More

Lee Kyle: Somewhat Adorable Man Baby 4****

August 16, 2017 |

Mr Kyle also does comedy for children, and you definitely get a sense of that in this show: a grown man doing and saying relatively ridiculous things on stage with the sole aim of making an audience happy for an … Read More

Samantha Pressdee: Back 2 Basics 4****

August 16, 2017 |

This show has lots of threads: it’s a lament for a friend and for society, it’s a cry for compassion, it’s an essay on radical left-wing politics, it’s excellent storytelling and very funny in lots of places. It addresses challenging … Read More
