Simon Feilder: All the Things I’m Not

Like many men of his generation, Simon Feilder talks about his insecurities about being a single man, but unlike a lot of them he spices his show up with multi-media presentations and an engaging stand-up routine.

Feilder is certainly an accomplished performer whose effortless delivery fills the time with only one lull in the proceedings, and even that is intentional.

He waxes lyrical about his shortcomings and all the supposed things that he isn’t good at doing or being, gaining the audience’s sympathy and trust early on. He is affable and talented and works the room well; not short for things to say and his routine is slick and well thought out.

Open and frank in his regaling, his humour can cross the line for today’s homogeneous crowd but actually he hits the mark superbly and could even go further.

Self-depricating as a lot of stand-ups are these days he does it with such a gentle, easy-going and appealing way that it is hard not to enjoy his company.

Deserving of a larger audience, Feilder is certainly an accomplished performer whose effortless delivery fills the time with only one lull in the proceedings, and even that is intentional.

A nice twist at the end of the show makes you wonder if he hasn’t just suckered you along with his stories but also leaves you thinking that actually he is a pretty sorted kind of chap.

A must see show that will surely do well at Edinburgh, just don’t be tardy!

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
