Peter Antoniou

ThreeWeeks Co-Editor Caro Moses recommends comedy shows at the Edinburgh Fringe.

Peter Antoniou: Comedium (pictured)
“Whether or not Antoniou is mind reading his awestruck audience by exposing their first flings or controlling them as a ventriloquist, this is very stylistically executed and optimised for comedic effect”. Is what we said about Peter Antoniou’s 2012 offering ‘Psychic Circus’. That alone seems like a good enough reason to turn up and see his latest work.
Sweet Grassmarket, 1-25 Aug, 4.10pm.

Tom Binns is Ian D Montfort: Psychic Fayre
Tom Binns, aka Comedy Award nominated hospital DJ Ivan Brackenbury, is back with his psychic character creation, medium and former ThreeWeeks columnist Ian D Montfort. Binns has an impressive comic pedigree; as well as creating numerous acclaimed live shows, he’s appeared on the likes of ‘The IT Crowd’ and ‘Knowing Me, Knowing You… With Alan Partridge’, as well as causing trouble with antics on his radio show on Xfm. In fact, if you haven’t already heard of him, why not? “Howlingly Funny”, says us.
Pleasance Courtyard, 31 Jul-25 Aug, 6.30pm.

Paul Gannon Aint Afraid Of No Ghosts
Okay, well, ‘psychic’ is probably stretching it a bit here. But you know, it’s got a ghostly theme, which sort of fits. Anyway, like many of us who watched and absorbed the film ‘Ghostbusters’ during our childhoods, Paul Gannon harboured the dream of becoming an actual Ghostbuster; as an adult, he revisits that dream, and this show is the result.
Just The Tonic At The Caves, 1-25 Aug (not 13), 5.20pm.
