Trevor Browne – Greaterness (Trevor Browne / PBH’s Free Fringe)

By | Published on Saturday 27 August 2011

‘Greaterness’ is surely intended as an ironic title, and yet it works perfectly as an actual description of this fantastic show. Browne has created the character of an arrogant and – in his own head – globally renowned musician, in an act which is brilliantly funny and perfect down to the last po-faced expression. He delivers hilarious musical numbers, many terrible puns and some highly enlightening poetry. Several bonus points should also be awarded for managing to insert ‘Canesten’ thrush cream into a genuinely funny song. Ultimately, it is hard to say which is more impressive – Browne’s masterful command of the audience or the fact that such a fine show doesn’t cost a penny. Don’t leave Edinburgh without having seen it.
