Fernando – Taste The Difference (Fernando)

By | Published on Saturday 24 August 2013

An elaborate array of camping equipment and other odd things at the ready, Fernando is prepared to entertain by any means necessary, with a set made up of mostly short, food-related gags ranging from the the silly to the absurd. Fernando comes across like a combination of a children’s programme presenter and the Swedish chef Muppet, because of his childish humour and ridiculous voice which can make even the most serious person giggle; everything got the audience laughing, whether they wanted to or not. This act began with just one sell-out show at the Fringe in 2011 and it’s clear that it’s going to get a lot bigger after this year too. Fernando is one to keep an eye on.

Sweet Grassmarket, until 24 Aug (not 21), 7.00pm.
