Courtroom Play: A Courtroom Play 5*****

August 13, 2018 |

I really enjoy Chekhov’s Bear, and this play has the same sort of feel: gently preposterous premise, characters you immediately care about, and a script that straddles the line of credulity. For the production itself, the set is relatively minimal, … Read More

Alternative Comedy Memorial Scociety (ACMS) 4****

August 11, 2018 |

Roughly eleven acts in a three hour show (two intervals!) showcasing things that might not work elsewhere. This one kept to time nicely (which is a first), possibly due to the reduced host-banter (though Thom Tuck singing compensated for that), … Read More

Alternative Comedy Memorial Society (ACMS) 4****

August 21, 2017 |

ACMS has another new home, and this one is hot, and not allowed to have loud music. So naturally, on the bill were a trumpet player, a saxophonist and a trombonist, and equally naturally, the audience (without a huge amount … Read More

Thom Tuck: An August Institution 5*****

August 19, 2017 |

That Thom Tuck is an experienced and perceptive performer is evident throughout this show. He’s unperturbed by silence, the pace and tone of delivery is measured and well-honed, and the whole lot is underlined by a wide array of caricatured … Read More

Thom:Foolery with Thom Tuck 3***

August 8, 2016 |

This is a compilation show: Thom Tuck, and two other thomedians, who also happen to be called Thom, or a variation thereof. Today we saw Tom Toal and Tomas Ford, and it was a thoroughly enjoyable and genial hour, if … Read More

A Slight Ache 3***

August 9, 2014 |

I’m not quite sure what to say about this show. It was either a masterpiece of theatre or really fairly average, though I was left bemused and unmoved. That is not to say the writing was not good … Read More

Voices in Your Head 4 Star ****

August 19, 2013 |

Last Fringe Deborah Frances-White initially presented this late night comedy treat and is recreating the spectacle once again as she ably leads some of the best comics around Edinburgh through an hour of entertainment that is an absolute treat.

Ms … Read More

Wardens

August 2, 2013 |

****

A group of five people, three of them traffic wardens, are pursued by a rioting mob and seek refuge in their unofficial clubhouse. They can’t leave safely, no one seems to be coming to help … Read More

Thom Tuck Flips Out

August 20, 2012 |

*****

I should declare my biases before writing this review. I like my comedy intelligent, articulate and literate. Thom Tuck is my new favourite comedian. Short and stout and slightly dishevelled, Thom Tuck looks like a stereotypical student … Read More

Thom Tuck Goes Straight-to-DVD

August 15, 2012 |

*****

You might have seen this show last year. If you didn’t you now have no excuse because it’s on for free (though you can make a donation at the end). And just because it’s free doesn’t mean … Read More
