Patti Harrison 4****

August 15, 2022 |

This show takes place in one of the larger venues on the Fringe, and it was about full to capacity. But I’ve never seen so many people leave during a show, especially not in such a large venue, where one … Read More

Nic Sampson: Marathon 1904 4****

Tessa Coates: Get Your Tessa Coates You’ve Pulled 4****

August 10, 2022 |

This show starts at a solid ‘good’ and improves immediately from there to achieve ‘excellent’ about half way through. Material and presentation aside, this is almost entirely due to Ms Coates’ skill in grabbing the audience by the emotions and … Read More

Tiff Stevenson – Sexy Brain 4.5 ****

Bacon – Pip Utton 5*****

August 11, 2021 |

This year’s fringe is blessed with another stand out performance by Pip Utton. On a sunny afternoon in the Pleasance Rear Courtyard venue, Pip enthralled his audience with his fascinating portrayal of Francis Bacon. As the audience arrived at the … Read More

Ben Pope: Dancing Bear 4****

August 23, 2019 |

Ben Pope seems like a lovely, warm fellow, without a cynical thought in his head or malice for anyone. He didn’t even have anything particularly negative to say about the sassy, nonchalant ghost, just accepted it, decided to find it … Read More

Superhero Academy – Environmental Adventure! – 5*****

August 20, 2019 |

“Awesome” was the verdict of my nine year old, and from the happy faces and queue for photos afterwards, she wasn’t alone in that opinion.

This was part ‘training camp’ part lesson in being environmentally friendly, and all lots of … Read More
