Immigrant Diaries: Sajeela Kershi and Guests

Immigrant Diaries: Sajeela Kershi and Guests

Looking over my time at this year’s Fringe, there have been several topics that have come up time and time again. 

Sajeela Kershi: Shallow Halal

Sajeela Kershi: Shallow Halal

Sajeela Kershi is firmly sat on the fence. 

Chris Dugdale: Sleightly Dishonest

Chris Dugdale: Sleightly Dishonest

Being a show in the weird and wacky world that is the Fringe, I must admit, I had certain expectations of magician Chris Dugdale. 

Ally Houston: Shandy

Ally Houston: Shandy

It’s hard to find an adjective that fully describes Ally Houston’s Shandy. 

Pippa Evans: There Are No Guilty Pleasures

Pippa Evans: There Are No Guilty Pleasures

Pippa Evans is probably the most infectious person you’ll meet at this year’s Fringe.

Leggoland

Opinions on his show aside, one simply can’t fault Colin Leggo for his sense of humour. 

Tom Allen: Both Worlds

Tom Allen: Both Worlds

Tom Allen is afraid of death. 

Chris Coltrane: Left-Wing Propaganda Machine

Chris Coltrane: Left-Wing Propaganda Machine

It’s amazing at times how little Chris Coltrane has to do to make his audience laugh.

As you walk into Aisling Bea: Plan Bea you’ll see a morph suit, dancing frantically in what can only be described as unbearable heat. 

Mitch Benn: That Was the Future

Mitch Benn: That Was the Future

‘I find something that I’m passionate about and then write the comedy around that’. 

The Pin: Ten Seconds with The Pin

The Pin: Ten Seconds with The Pin

It’s almost impossible to see a sketch show that doesn’t have its misses; hit and miss is so much of an audience expectation it has almost become the received format. 

Geoff Norcott: The Look of Moron

Geoff Norcott: The Look of Moron

At the start of his show Geoff Norcott claims he’s a moron. 

Bec Hill: Caught On Tape

Bec Hill: Caught On Tape

Creating a show focusing on the idea of regret is frankly an extremely brave one: regret be an extremely sad and prickly topic, something which Hill alludes to in the first five mi… 

The Soaking of Vera Shrimp

The Soaking of Vera Shrimp

The Soaking of Vera Shrimp may seem at first like a fairly quirky premise. 

Idiots

Idiots

The act of judging is at the centre of The Idiot, Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s 19th century masterpiece about a naïve and simple minded prince in St Petersburg. 

Honest to Godley!

Honest to Godley!

As I walk into Honest to Godley, Janey Godley is already onstage, hand on hip and chatting to her audience. 

Anna Morris: It's Got To Be Perfect

Anna Morris: It's Got To Be Perfect

I’ve always somewhat despised weddings. 

Chris Betts: Social Animal
