George Egg has twenty years experience on the comedy circuit. This means two things; he is an adept and skilful comedian, and he has spent a lot of time in budget hotels. As a budding cook and food enthusiast, the cold sandwiches and overpriced room service seem to have taken their toll on him, because he has devised a number of incredible systems to rustle up a three course gourmet meal - not only dealing with the restrictions of a sparsely-furnished hotel room, but keeping to a strict one hour time-limit for all preparation and process...

Tommy Tiernan Alive in Edinburgh

Tommy Tiernan Alive in Edinburgh

Before he took to the stage, Tommy Tiernan took in some shows around Edinburgh. What struck him, whether the show was good or bad, was the humility and generosity of the acts.

Funmbi Omotayo: Legal Immigrant

Funmbi Omotayo: Legal Immigrant

Minor Delays

Minor Delays

Those little things that hold you back, awkward pauses and abashed hesitations of everyday life: the focus of Minor Delays. Belly-laughing isn’t optional.

Jeff Green: Happiness

Jeff Green: Happiness

Jeff Green wastes no time in getting to the meaning behind the title, asking the ever-relevant question “What am I doing with my life?” Surely at 50, Green knows what he wants from life; surely he must have made some progress in deciding his life’s purpose by now?

Echoes by Henry Naylor

Two women on a stage: one in a black gown, one in a white gown; a modern day schoolgirl jihadi and a Victorian intellectual. Why have they been put together?

Stephen Bailey: Neon Heart

Stephen Bailey: Neon Heart

Stephen Bailey—all silver dickie bow tie, floral grey suit and camp demeanour—is clearly in love with love and romance.

Gordon Southern: Your New Favourite Comedian

Demi Lardner: Birds with Human Lips

Demi Lardner: Birds with Human Lips

As a recipient of the Gilded Balloon’s So You Think You’re Funny? Award Demi Lardner belongs to an elite group of comedy talent. Winning it can make a career. Lardner has enough talent to make it without such accolades, although it’s always good to find someone who clearly deserves them...

So You Think You're Funny?

So You Think You're Funny?

Abigoliah Schamaun: It's Pronounced Abigoliah Schamaun

Abigoliah Schamaun: It's Pronounced Abigoliah Schamaun

Abigoliah Schamaun has been painted as caustic, controversial and not for the faint of heart.

Juliette Burton: Look at Me

Juliette Burton: Look at Me is not entirely what I would call a comedy. Certainly there are jokes in there, mostly consisting of light audience banter and innuendo of the ‘ex-boyfriend’ variety...

Boxman

Boxman

Boxman, the eponymous star of this one man show, is a lad, no doubt about it. For all his neurosis and Mummy issues, he is a lad. He likes drugs and drinking and one night stands. He is handsome, buff, and has an accent that would turn this heterosexual reviewer over in a heart beat...

The Axis of Awesome: Viva La Vida Loca Las Vegas

The title of this show is not nearly the best thing about it, but it alone should be enough to send you scurrying straight to the box office.The Axis of Awesome are the comedy band behind the viral internet video Four Chord Song, and no doubt they sell many tickets off the back of it...

A TED* Talk with Clay JW Crowne (*not affiliated with TED.com, its members, fellows, organisers, partners, subsidiaries, sponsors or stockholders)

Needless to say, the selling point of Nathan Roberts’ show is its title which promises an hour of ruthless satire. What the audience had come to see was the ripping out of the beating heart of slacktivism – the feel-good-do-nothing phenomenon that is the TED Talk...

Kevin Day: Standy Uppy

Kevin Day: Standy Uppy

Kevin Day begins his act with a long, cautious introduction, letting us know what is to come. He says he's self-aware and whimsical, joking that the entire act is in fact a metaphor for the Scottish referendum – even the sections about lesbian pornography and UKIP weather forecasts – but he also warns us of the glee he takes in being offensive: about Oscar Pistorius, about dwarfism and even about his own wife’s cancer diagnosis and treatment...

Pentimento

Pentimento

One of the perils of confessional theatre is that you may end up paying to witness someone airing their dirty laundry. When a play is overtly based on the writer’s real-life experiences, are we in for a dose of gratuitous navel-gazing or some real insight? In the case of Pentimento, this is not a major concern... 

Showstopper! The Improvised Musical

Showstopper! The Improvised Musical

No one expects to watch a musical set in a dog parlour with a canine duel – or, more precisely, ‘The Amazing New York State Poodle Fighting Championship’ – as its climax.

Baba Brinkman - The Rap Guide to Religion
