Glenn Wool: Creator, I Am But A Pawn

August 10, 2015

The word ‘edgy’ is overused in comedy, often applied to mundane material spiced up with swears, or simply box-ticking gag-reflex taboos that are rolled out routinely to break up a set with a raised Jimmy […]

Spencer Jones Presents: The Herbert in Proper Job

August 10, 2015

Down in The Hive (Edinburgh’s moistest nightclub) there is an act that is a pure hit of Fringe silliness. Spencer Jones is The Herbert, a mostly non-verbal character who wants to play around with toys, trinkets […]

Funz and Gamez Tooz

August 10, 2015

I was a bit nervous about seeing Funz and Gamez Tooz. I’d previously seen Phil Ellis’ 2013 Edinburgh show, Unplanned Orphan. I thought it was brilliant, but difficult to describe without giving away what was […]

Kyle Kinane: Ghost Pizza Party

August 8, 2015

An American abroad, Kyle Kinane doesn’t know what to expect from his debut Fringe show. It’s hard to know what he made of the Cowgate Underbelly, with the sound of its noisy bar bleeding into […]

Dane Baptiste: Reasonable Doubts

August 7, 2015

Last year’s best newcomer nominee, Dane Baptiste has seen his career steadily ascend with a BBC Feed My Funny pilot and favourable critical reviews. There’s a strong crowd who’ve come to see him, some returning audience […]
