Reviews and interviews from Edinburgh Fringe 2015.

Markus Birdman: Grimm Realities

August 28, 2015

Markus Birdman is a man of many talents. As well as crafting a funny and heartfelt stand-up show, he also illustrates it using story-books he’s created himself, projected onto the screen. The drawings are colourful […]

Steve Bugeja: Day Release

August 26, 2015

It’s not hard to imagine Steve Bugeja becoming a big comedy star in the next few years. He tells us early on that he’s a real geek, an awkward introvert who can’t cope with most […]

John-Luke Roberts: Stdad-Up

The Kagools

August 19, 2015

Kieran Hodgson: Lance

August 18, 2015

For the previous two years running, The French Quarter in the Voodoo Rooms has bestowed a bit of the Midas touch upon one act in particular, Fosters Newcomer and Winner John Kearns. Like Kearns, there’s […]
