REVIEW: Matt Hoss: Here Comes Your Man, Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2019 ★★★☆☆

Oh my. Oh my, oh my. Matt Hoss. What a unique individual. I’ll be honest, there isn’t a huge amount to say about Matt Hoss. However what there is to say is largely positive.  Although the stand up comic treads the oh so familiar ground of the classic comic routine surrounding relationship problems, (YAY. Another […]

REVIEW: Portents, Edinburgh Fringe 2019 ★★★☆☆

Portents is weird. Like, really weird. After an evocative and atmospheric opening, the play settles into a set-up of the three performers (Ross Hunter, Ben Kulvichit and Clara Potter-Sweet) stood on stage with music sheet stands speaking out to the audience. United in their convictions and predicaments but, at the same time, entirely isolated. The […]

REVIEW: Simon Caine, Edinburgh Fringe 2019 ★★★☆☆

The only note I wrote for Simon Caine’s stand-up show, Every Room Becomes a Panic Room When You Overthink Enough (definitely not a mouthful) was “affable, John Oliver vibes.” Apparently, I’m not the first reviewer to make the comparison – comedian Doug Stanhope described Caine as a “more authentic John Oliver.” And, yeah.

First up, […]

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: 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 […]

Review: Banging and Screwing, Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2018 ★★★☆☆

Megan Juniper, playwright and performer, this year brings us her third consecutive Edinburgh Fringe show, a musical adventure set in an independent and struggling hardware store, exploring the meaning of masculinity in todays society. Leggy Blonde Productions‘ niche is relationships and sexual health, this niche paired with provocative titles results in large and consistent audiences. […]
