A comedy show based entirely on pictures. It was always going to be a big ask for Al Pitcher to keep the 8pm Edinburgh crowd in the palm of his hand. However, he managed it - just about.Pitcher narrates how he wants to show the audience the world through his eyes by taking pictures around Edinburgh of out of place or downright strange things. Granted, some of the photos are genius and the accompanying jokes land nicely.
Pitcher’s comic style is unconventional to say the least. He flops around the stage delivering small jokes to create a build up of laughs. Complimentary to his stage gait is his delivery style: the whole show is performed with an informal twang. If a joke didn't land properly he would save it with an apology to the audience. This worked the first handful of times but after that it became stale. Another rather gaping hole was that some of the material was just not funny.
Although the audience found themselves left straight faced for longer than they would have liked in a £10.50 comedy show, it was enjoyable. The ending provides a fitting conclusion to the photo's motif and is imaginative. However nothing can hide the fact this is rather a hit and miss. The hits are fantastically funny and the misses are often cringe worthy. Pitcher has essentially created the tiniest of triumphs with this show.
