A double bill of Edinburgh comedy previews.
MICHAEL LEGGE: The Idiot
‘The angriest man in UK comedy is back at the Fringe for another hour of spleen-venting, more misanthropic, bitter and agitated than ever’ **** (Chortle.co.uk)
‘Big laughs and ranty surrealism from gripe-happy comic’ **** (List)
‘Legge’s unstoppable anger should by all rights wear thin over an hour in close proximity, but the passion with which he performs and the honesty with which he presents himself – along with the genuine joy that peppers the piece – combine to form one of the most refreshing and engaging shows of the Fringe’ ***** (BroadwayBaby.com)
AMY HOWERSKA: Serious Face
Non TV-famous, non award-winning comic Amy Howerska returns because she’s not yet learnt her lesson. Through a series of errors (love), Howerska has accidentally found herself Californian. As her friends beg her ‘not to get all American’, Howerska knows that she will never be that confident. But she’s made some loltastic stories out of it; you know, ‘Americans are like this and Brits are like ‘ello governor’ sort of comedy, but not rubbish.
