Funny Bones And Wisdom Teeth (Dr Ray Lowry / Free Festival)

By | Published on Wednesday 14 August 2013

Retired Doctor Ray Lowry provides a number of amusing yet cringe-worthy anecdotes, recounting his time in the professions of dentistry and medicine. The set contains a well-scripted collection of old school jokes about local anaesthetics, gynaecology, and the age old embarrassment of purchasing condoms. There were times when Lowry’s tales of teeth and tits never really materialised into a joke, and the random slapstick element tagged on to the end was a disappointing finish. But though it won’t get your pulse racing, it’s healthy to have a good groan once in a while. Just pray that your own doctor doesn’t one day undertake a similar venture…

Laughing Horse @ Edinburgh City Football Club, until 24 Aug (not 11, 12, 18, 19), 4.15pm.
