Brendon Burns And Craig Quartermaine In Race Off (Mick Perrin Worldwide)

By | Published on Thursday 17 August 2017

Having met via Burns’ ‘Dumb White Guy’ podcast, in which the comedian interviews people of different backgrounds, ethnicity, gender and sexuality to ask them “dumb white guy questions”, he and Quartermaine have come to the Fringe to tell us about working and performing together in Australia. They may both be Aussies, but the men have led very different lives, with their show focusing on the social conditioning we all exhibit and experience on account of our race. They are a wonderful double-act: Edinburgh fixture Burns is a never-ending box of firecrackers, barely able to keep still, while Quartermaine is cool and collected. Their observations will give you something to think about and, most importantly, a huge amount to laugh at as they poke fun at one another.

Gilded Balloon Teviot, until 28 Aug.
