James Acaster – Lawnmower (Phil McIntyre Entertainments)

By | Published on Tuesday 6 August 2013

Perhaps the most enjoyable aspect of James Acaster’s show is that every laugh feels entirely guilt-free. In his third solo Fringe show, he navigates through topics from the unfair infamy of Yoko Ono to his various business plans, never relying on the cheap and overused clichés that some comedians often fall back on for a mainstream appeal. He is instead brave enough to stick to his quirky and inoffensive humour that feels well thought out, fresh and fun. There is much comic build up and pay off throughout the show, keeping the audience constantly engaged and amused. With delightfully uncommon source material and a charismatic delivery, Acaster’s show is sure to be a success.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 25 Aug, 7.00pm.
