A Political Breakfast – 3***

August 24, 2018 |

Host Chris O’Neill introduces us to the panel who will be debating the issues of the day, despite how very early, in Fringe time, in the day it is. The hour doesn’t stop the room being full, with further people … Read More

Kriss Foster: The Mug Tree 3***

August 15, 2017 |

This is a slow moving show – roomy – which has lots of pleasing elements rather than outright belly laughs, delivered by an apparently awkward, genial, northerner. The show ponders along through a variety of subjects and bouncing off various … Read More

Weird Stuff 3***

August 19, 2016 |

The performance of this show was super: confident, committed to the material, clear delivery, bringing in the whole room. Some of the material, especially the last act, was excellent. It had an extra level of energy and audience participation that … Read More

Carey Marx – Hero of the People 5*****

August 13, 2016 |

If you are searching for a hero, then there is one lurking deep in the underworld below the Liquid Rooms in Edinburgh’s old town and that hero is a 50 year old guy with a wicked sense of humour. Marx … Read More

James Ross – Leopardoptera 5*****

August 28, 2015 |

James Ross has huge energy and no indoor voice. He’s also friendly, cuddly (like a teddy with a nice smile) and intelligent. Not snobby-I’m-brighter-than-you nastily intelligent, but has-a-working-brain-and-expects-you-do-too intelligent, and his comedy is accordingly pitched several solid degrees … Read More

Waking Up in Trees and Trucks 3***

August 25, 2015 |

Trine Munk has a lovely voice, both when she’s singing (I especially liked the one about the economy sung in Danish) and when she’s leading meditations. It’s by turns powerful and melodic, and gentle and unobtrusive, as well … Read More

Al Lubel: Al Lubel Free 3**

August 22, 2015 |

Al Lubel is an extremely funny, talented and clever comedian and it wouldn’t be an Al Lubel show without you hearing the mellifluous Al Lubel, Al Lubel several times, he also manages to fit his name into several other words … Read More

Stand-Up Philosophy – Free 3***

August 13, 2015 |

I really like the concept of this show – even more so when I realised that the theme – as well as the guest philosophers – change each day. Today I listened to ruminations on Good/Evil from three … Read More

John-Luke Roberts: Stdad-Up 5*****

August 12, 2015 |

Do not be deceived by the blurb for this show. As we left, my cheeks and stomach hurt, so I know I had been poorless with laughter, but more immediate were the tears: regardless of whether the show … Read More

Kate Smurthwaite: The Wrong Sort of Feminist ****

August 9, 2015 |

Kate Smurthwaite may be the wrong sort of feminist for a specific institution’s student association, but I think she’s probably the right kind to be doing comedy on the Fringe: articulate, reasoned, persuasive, and funny. She doesn’t do … Read More
