Ivor’s Other Show (Ivor Dembina / Laughing Horse Free Festival)

By | Published on Sunday 14 August 2011

“Unplanned, unscripted and probably different every day” is the synopsis for this hour-long show, led by Ivor Dembina. The day I attended centred around how humour can differ across the globe, with two international comics joining Dembina on stage. At this very light-hearted and easy-going show, the audience were actively encouraged to express their own opinions on humour and ask the comedians questions. As interesting as many of the subjects were, Dembina was far too serious at times and some parts came across as too regimented, however, when left to follow its own natural flow, the show was very funny and thought-provoking. As the Free Fringe continues, this show will hopefully find its stride, and generate even more laughs.

Laughing Horse at The Counting House, 4-28 Aug (not 9, 16, 23), 3.30pm (4.30pm), free, fpp93.
