A Brief History Of Time (Michelangelo’s Heroes/Free Festival)

By | Published on Wednesday 10 August 2011

Michelangelo’s Heroes may have won the BBC New Talent Award, but they admittedly haven’t done much since. Their debut show at the Fringe proves, however, that they do have much to offer. Structured in the form of a science lecture, ‘A Brief History Of Time’ showcases the act’s penchant for goofy humour and comical sketches which may or may not bear any relation to the main theme of the show. This can be a little distracting at times, particularly when they shove a picture of a woman being gangbanged in your face, using the old “Oh, how did that get in there?” line. Nevertheless, the show is an early sign of bigger (and much better) things to come.

Laughing Horse @ Jekyll & Hyde, 4 – 28 Aug (not 8, 15, 22), 3.05pm (4.05pm), free, fpp52.
