Thom Tuck: The Square Root of Minus One 4****

August 23, 2014 |

This show wasn’t in the Fringe guide, but is under of one of the free festival umbrellas, so I’m counting it as Fringe. However, that means you might only know about it if you know about Thom Tuck, … Read More

Luke Toulson: Laid-Back Grouch 4****

August 20, 2014 |

Mr Toulson does not look as old as he says he is, and he’s a very genial grouch, even with the two teenagers in the front row who talked most of the way through the set. It’s not … Read More

Paul Savage Finds Every Joke in the Bible 3***

August 19, 2014 |

I am continually encouraged by the fact that people will put on shows which require brains to be engaged, and that audiences will attend them. This show is literary criticism and interpretation which also happens to be pointing … Read More

Madame Magenta: Libros Mystica 4****

August 19, 2014 |

Madam disclosed to us at the start of the show that she’d lost much of her music during a technical meltdown earlier in the Fringe. If that is indeed the case, I’m even more impressed, because this did … Read More

Stephanie Laing: Nincompoop 3***

August 15, 2014 |

I liked Ms Laing, little bit ‘wierdo’, definitely ‘lovable’. She had a really comfortable and cosy stage presence, like sitting round a table in a pub, and her delivery of her material was confident and clear. The material … Read More

Don’t Worry Guys It’s Sarah Campbell 3***

August 13, 2014 |

If being picked out of an audience at a show is your worst nightmare, do not go to this one. Ms Campbell is a worrier, and is looking for the person in the audience most like her. I … Read More

Andrew O’Neill – Mindspiders 4****

August 9, 2014 |

Mr O’Neill has a large stage presence, and although I found him a little loud at times (albeit I was at the front of a rather long room), he built a good rapport with the audience. Some members of that … Read More

Phill Jupitus is Porky the Poet in Juplicity 4****

August 6, 2014 |

This is the poetry one (he’s in a few this year), although Mr Jupitus did also point that out fairly early on just to make sure.

There are two approaches to the free fringe: relative unknowns … Read More

Charmian Hughes: Raj Rage! 4****

August 6, 2014 |

A good story told well doesn’t necessarily have to be funny to be engaging, but Ms Hughes’ managed to be amusing into the bargain as well. This piece of comic theatre intertwines the story of Charmian’s visits to India with … Read More

Gareth Morinan Is Playing the Numbers Game

August 10, 2013 |


This show started with a lot of promise, but ended up on the other side of surreal and didn’t manage to take the audience with it. Nominally, this show is about dating, relevant data and … Read More
