One week and 20 shows in, I thought I’d share a summary of my favourite shows for anyone planning their weekend:
My favourite show of the fringe so far is The Boy With Tape On His Face, a wonderful splicing of mime and comedy!
For stand-up, Richard Herring’s We’re All Going to Die was brilliant.
The Noise Next Door are brilliant if a bit of improv takes your fancy.
On the Free Fringe we really enjoyed Aidan Goatley is On the Mend.
For musical theatre, Facehunters has amazing music and an impressive cast.
The Creative Martyr’s After the Apocalypse is a fantastic Free Fringe offering, darkly funny. For a slightly edgier late evening show, Silhouette Burlesque is definitely worth a visit (also Free Fringe).
East End Cabaret is a good bet for a some smutty cabaret humour and songs.
