Hilarity Bites Comedy Club Showcase (Hilarity Bites / Free Festival)

By | Published on Thursday 15 August 2013

Hosted by the lively Danny Deegan, Hilarity Bites is a revolving line up of different comedians performing extracts from their shows. Having no connecting theme, the event is not a piece in itself, but acts as a platform for performers to advertise their solo projects. First up was John Gavin, refreshingly and intensely Scottish, with horror stories featuring the St Andrews aquarium (or ‘the fish prison’), as well as the inevitable differences between Glasgow and Edinburgh. The other notable act, Paul Savage, was brave enough to be more offensive than the others, with a number of insane anecdotes. Worth a watch if you have time to kill; there are lurking shades of brilliance.

Laughing Horse @ Free Sisters, until 25 Aug, 2.45pm.
