REVIEW – Life of Si @ GRV / Five Pound Fringe

*****

Life of Si is part of the very popular Five Pound Fringe  5.40pm at the GRV venue. Sy and Simon were witty, hair conscious men.  The show is based around the set up of their shared flat in London.  They let the audience into their lives a little, by showing  dvd collections, games they play and […]

REVIEW – At Home With Holly

*****

At Home with Holly is one of the more unusual shows I have seen in the Fringe over the years.   Holly Burn, who is an exceptional comedy actress invites you into her home  for the festival.  You can buy tickets in advance from the Fringe office,  the Five Pound Fringe / GRV box office, or you […]

REVIEW – The Hotel, Mark Watson

*****

The Hotel is an interesting festival experience to say the least and are brought to you by the people of the Invisible Dot but the main name behind the show that you may recognise is Mark Watson. Watson for me, is one of the best performers of the Fringe / Festival over the last number of years […]

REVIEW – Paul Zerdin Sponge Fest

*****

Paul Zerdin is a very talented man indeed.  His ventriloquist skills are so astonishing with the speed he can mix his voices.  I was in the front row and after realising that I was never going to see him move his lips, was transfixed on his characters and their almost human like qualities. I was even subject […]

REVIEW – Chris Cox

*****

Myself and 3 friends went to see Chris Cox last night and along with a full house, we all thoroughly enjoyed the show.  I last saw Chris at the festival 2 years ago and he seems to have matured his stage presence a lot, with a huge injection of humour.  I didn’t expect to laugh as much […]

REVIEW – Jason Byrne at Assembly Hall

*****

Jason Byrne is a festival favourite of mine and tonight (his opening night) he didn’t disappoint.  Despite a 35 minute delay in starting, the audience were receptive to his madness from the start. He loosely talked about two injuries he has sustained in his lifetime, but obviously went off the beaten track in true Jason Byrne style.  […]

REVIEW – Ivan Brackenbury at The Stand

*****

I went to see Ivan Brackenbury at The Stand comedy club on St Patrick’s Day. I first saw Ivan at the Edinburgh Festival in 2007 when he was an Intelligent Finance Comedy Award nominee (formerly Perrier awards) His comedy is new and refreshing and to my knowledge no-one else does this kind of show.  Ivan is a […]
