Afternoon Delight (Just The Tonic)

By | Published on Tuesday 6 August 2013

The Fringe can be an overwhelming place; one flick through the programme is enough to give you palpitations from the stress of choosing which shows to attend. Luckily, Just The Tonic are doing the hard work for you, and showcasing some of their acts in handy little bite-sized slots. It’s like a lovely, delectable buffet of comedy, and family friendly to boot. Bargain. And most heartening of all, every act featured was glorious, inventive and funny. Particular highlights included Abigoliah Shamaun, who despite struggling a little to watch her Ps and Qs (and Fs) was shocking and very funny, and That Pair, whose combination of song-writing, comic timing and extreme social awkwardness made them very loveable indeed.

Just The Tonic at The Caves, until 25 Aug (not 13), 1.15pm.
