Fear Itself (Keith Farnan)

By | Published on Thursday 22 August 2013

Keith Farnan is no stranger to comedy, and indeed the Fringe, which he’s been attending for some years now, so it’s no surprise that he’s practised; he has done the standard joke after joke formula countless times, and it works. This show was to be different, however. It was a fantastic set of musings on life’s philosophy, its principal questions, the meaning of falling in love, of death and of our achievements, combined with observational humour about society. Farnan proved himself to be a spirited comedian who deeply cares about his profession and his audience, and demonstrated his genuine skill for comedy by quickly providing a witty response to a heckler, as well as improvising about the spread of where the crowd were seated. Highly original stand-up which will make you laugh and think.

Underbelly Cowgate, until 25 Aug, 6.20pm.
