Tim Clare – How To Be A Leader (Show + Tell / Escalator East To Edinburgh / Tilt)

By | Published on Saturday 20 August 2011

‘How to Be a Leader’ is a show with an intelligent premise, performed by an even more intelligent comedian. This seminar on leadership is multidimensional and worryingly, despite Tim explicitly highlighting the simple tools leaders employ to gain power, by the end of the show, the audience are hanging on to his every word. It’s like submitting to a true leader and competing for a reward for laughing the hardest. Giving everything from tyrannical rule and assassination attempts a skewed and comedic twist, Tim’s show is entertaining, fast-paced and clever, forcing the audience to remain on their toes and engaged. In addition, hilarious raps on historical female figures demonstrate Tim’s skills as a wordsmith and his extensive potential.

Underbelly, 4 – 28 Aug (not 15), 8.55pm (9.55pm), £8.00 – £10.00, fpp158.
