Billy Kirkwood – Show Me Your Tattoo – Free (Billy Kirkwood)

By | Published on Thursday 25 August 2011

This tattooed, hairy Scotsman is possibly one of the funniest comedians at the Fringe. With a totally original premise – showing random photos of horrible tattoos that Billy has never seen before, then making up most of his routine on the spot – I honestly can’t believe this show was for free. He offers audience members a chance to bust out their own tattoos and claims by the end of the Fringe he’ll have seen more inked up penises than anyone alive. In between the hilarity, Billy draws tattoo suggestions from the audience on a white board, with the promise to get one of them at the end of the festival. He does a children’s show too – hopefully without the nudity.

Laughing Horse at The White Horse, 5 – 27 Aug, 4.00pm (4.50pm), free, fpp49.
