After last years sell-out performances at the Fringe, English Comedian of the Year finalist Adam Rowe has bought his show Pinnacle to the Edinburgh Fringe.
A voice of honesty in today's political correctness landscape is a rare find.
Rowe sails close to the wind on many occasions, yet redeems the situation by pointing out the other side of his joke. Highlighting how human beings can be extremely complex with many confusing double standards with what they will accept when the situation suits them.
The 27-year-old comedian is extremely clever and well versed in the topics he chooses to use in his routines. For example – who is actually eligible to be a Victoria Secrets model? Apparently no one in his audience. Despite a few gasps when you look at it, he's absolutely right. A voice of honesty in today's political correctness landscape is a rare find.
It would initially be very easy to be offended at times during his set. However, as Rowe explains, using his past audiences as an example, if you actually hear what he is saying rather than just listen, misunderstandings can be avoided.
Winning Dave's Best Joke of the Fringe last year surprised Rowe, as he said to me "I don't tell jokes" – and he doesn't! Although he is the funniest comedian I have seen at the Fringe so far.
