Chris Washington: Dream Big (Within Reason)

By | Published on Friday 25 August 2017

There is a place for angst-free, amiable young northerners telling gently amusing anecdotes about their lack of ambition. Whether that place is a full hour at the Fringe is questionable, but Chris Washington gives it a fair and enthusiastic bash with these assorted tales from his life as, well, an angst-free, amiable young northerner. There are some clever lines about cars, taxi queues and crap paternal advice – “dadvice” – plus a slightly incongruous bit about the menopause. It’s kind of like the slower bits of a Jason Manford set (make of that what you will). He is, by his own reckoning, just delighted to be here with an audience and that audience seems pretty pleased with him too.

Just The Tonic at the Mash House, until 27 Aug.
