Faux Latino Show Pony (Jacob Edwards)

By | Published on Wednesday 21 August 2013

Deranged, bizarre and completely unhinged, Jacob Edwards’ show is unlike many that you’ll see at the Fringe. If all that madness could be harnessed for the duration of the performance, then he’d be getting rave reviews everywhere. Unfortunately, at present, Edwards only lets the audience see his brilliance in certain, undoubtedly hilarious, moments. Some of the characters, notably an inexperienced stand-up, were overplayed a little bit, whilst others weren’t given enough attention. Nonetheless, Edwards clearly has talent and managed to whip up a frenzy in the incomprehensibly sparse venue. If he can refine his comedy and build on what talent he already has, then I expect him to be doing big things in the future.

Assembly Hall, until 26 Aug, 7.45pm.
