Kevin Cruise (Assembly)

By | Published on Friday 26 August 2011

To say that I was brimming with cynicism as I took my seat in the Bosco tent in George Square would have been something of an understatement – most likely due to recalling the terror of Kevin Cruise’s performances on that televised atrocity that is ‘Britain’s Got Talent’. But if you allow him to take you along as an interactive pastiche of crappy Cruise entertainment, it actually works surprisingly well as a family show, with the host able to delight the kids with silly tricks and songs, getting grown-ups to dance like idiots, and winking knowingly at the rest of the audience all the while. It’s perhaps a little over-priced, but it’s hardly a bad way to spend an hour with the family.

Assembly George Street, 3 – 29 Aug (not 15), 3.50pm (4.40pm), £8.00 – £12.00, fpp105.
