A Panda Suit, Pythagoras And Plenty Of Puns (Nikhil Tilwalli)

By | Published on Wednesday 21 August 2013

I don’t know about you, but if I were making my Fringe debut, dressing up in a panda suit would not be my first choice. Nevertheless, this was only the first of many impressive moves from a comedian who proved to be as funny as he is bizarre. Openly obsessed with puns, it was hard not leave the show feeling at least slightly intrigued by the wordplay, a tribute to his thought-provoking set. Tilwalli’s personality seemed absolutely integral to his comedy, with a quirky disposition and awkward demeanour proving to be an endearing combination. With flawless logic he connects sex with mathematics, St Augustine with Usher and even Vin Diesel with Gandhi – this comedian is anything but unoriginal.

Just the Tonic at The Caves, until 22 Aug (not 13), 8.00pm.
