REVIEW: Leopold Vindictive, Edinburgh Fringe 2019 ★★☆☆☆

In 1940s Belgium, we’re privy to the lives of brave civilians who passed information to the British government through carrier pigeons. It’s a concept with a lot of scope and potential, however Acting Coach Scotland’s production of Leopold Vindictive by Cecile Durel is lacklustre in performance and only taps the surface in theme and style. Officer Sanders has been […]

Mini-Review: David Attree at Brighton Fringe 2019

I should start by saying I don’t feel I can give a traditional star rating in this new format “mini-review” as I only saw about a quarter of an hour’s performance. Regardless of that, I do hope to see a full show of David Attree’s soon. This mini-review will be talking about a short section […]

Review: Blue Moon ★★★☆☆

In any other context if someone asked me whether not I wanted a slice of orange in my lager, I would suggest they were potentially under the influence of some sort of narcotic substance. With Blue Moon, a hoppy “Belgian-style” (it was originally brewed in Denver and is now brewed in my previous home city […]

Review: Drunk With A Pen, Joseph J Clark, Brighton Fringe 2019 ★★★★★

It’s almost as if someone wrote a show purposefully for our publication. Spoken Word navigating the sometimes tricky and sometimes debauchery-laden waters of alcohol. Sign us right up. Joseph J Clark wanders onto stage, pint in hand, to give us a rough outline of the contents of the oncoming thirteen and a half poems. He suggests […]

A Digital Pint with… Benjamin Alborough of Ricky Riddlegang & The Riddle Gang, Brighton Fringe 2019

Join us here at the Binge Fringe pub for a Digital Pint with writer-performer Benjamin Alborough. We reviewed his EdFringe 18 show Cream Tea and Incest (Four Stars) which you can read here, and we’re very excited to have an early insight into his new creation produced by Peracals Productions and co-written by Harry J Williams, as […]

Binge Fringe is coming to Brighton Fringe 2019!

Hibernation season has ended for Binge Fringe. We’ve all been snuggled up for these past few winter months together in a small cave somewhere between Bradford and the M1. It’s been comfortable and cosy, but I’m starting to get a bit sick of Mike’s heavy breathing in the night and listening to Jasper talk about […]

Review: Tennent’s ★★★☆☆

As the old saying goes “Tennents flows like water in Scotland.” At least it might go like that, I don’t know, I 100% just made that up. But I don’t think there’s any evidence to contrary that. Come to Edinburgh and you’ll see the infamous, luring T sign dangling outside of every bar, pub and […]

My Edfringe Sign Off: Jake Mace

So my very short but sweet tenure at Edfringe this year has ended. I’m a little disappointed I was only able to make it for a week this year, however it was a fun packed week of debauchery and some brilliant, brilliant shows. As I head off on the turn of my heel to Camden, […]

Review: The Dip, Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2018 – ★★★★★

11:30pm, it’s a tough spot to fill. For many the “late night” fringe represents a warped section of incredibly strangely titled shows ranging from The Importance of Being Earnest as Performed by Three F*cking Queens and a Duck to Late Night Gimp Fight. Not that there’s anything wrong with Late Night Gimp Fight. Milk and Blood’s The Dip then, a […]

Review: Corona ★★☆☆☆

The picture at the top there shows my mortal enemy and life partner Michael Dorey with a Corona. I hate Corona. Let me open this review by being very clear on that. Two stars is such an incredibly generous rating for what is essentially a liquidised urinal cake. I’m only giving it this much because […]
