AAA Stand-up Late (Bound and Gagged Comedy)

By | Published on Sunday 11 August 2013

If you enjoy smugly boasting about having seen a well renowned stand-up “before they were famous”, then haste ye to AAA Stand-Up Late to see Stuart Mitchell. Straight out of the school of self-deprecating Glaswegian comedians, comparisons will inevitably be drawn between Mitchell and Kevin Bridges. But in 20 oh-too-brief minutes Mitchell aptly demonstrates that his scope for mirth goes far beyond any “Glasgow’s a wee bit rough” routine. Nick Dixon and Laura Lexx complete the trio of comedians being showcased, with both demonstrating in ephemeral glimpses an  impressive knack for stand-up. Irrespective of their hit-and-miss routines, however, this late night show is well worth a visit: Mitchell’s performance alone is worth the admission fee.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 26 Aug, 11.00pm.
