A Midlife Crisis: Live! (Mick Sergeant)

By | Published on Thursday 11 August 2011

Who’s that on the phone? Society! This one-man show features a vulnerable man down on his luck, as he reflects on life and muses over the state of the world today. Performed in a small room at one of the quaintest venues at the Fringe, the show is mixture of stand-up and theatre. It certainly begins well, and the issues covered are poignantly contemporary, so that the audience can easily relate – indeed, the audience are integral to the show as a whole. However, despite the few great moments, there is a certain feeling of mediocrity about the show as a whole, as it fails to explore much the vast swathe of potential held in the stimulating premise.

The Stand Comedy Club III & IV, 3 – 28 Aug (not 4, 15), times vary, £7.00 – £8.00, fpp280.
