Big Spoon, Little Spoon (Jamie Oliphant and Cio Dav / Free Festival)

By | Published on Monday 12 August 2013

In what must be the most outlandish venue at the Fringe, ‘Big Spoon, Little Spoon’ is a comedy club atop a double-decker bus stationed in a beer garden. Crazy right? Being 1am, however, virtually all of the audience have had a few too many gin and slims to notice, making for a very rowdy hour. All the acts struggle to keep the crowd under control and are susceptible to substantial heckling. Jamie Oliphant and Cio Dav were the best of a meagre bunch but the show quickly plummeted into mediocrity, with jokes that rarely generated more than a mild murmur. Unless you are three sheets to the wind, I would recommend getting the train instead.

Laughing Horse @ The Free Sisters, until 17 Aug (not 4, 11), 1.00am.
