Late Night Laughs At Lunch – Free (Lunch Late Laughing)

By | Published on Thursday 22 August 2013

Each act here was given just five minutes to entice audience members to their full-length show; yet even this often proved to be too much. The host, Eric Hutton, was by far the most assured comic, developing a good rhythm only for this to be punctured by the introduction of another stand-up. Many of the seven guests opted for fairly safe material about their own nationality, with Jennifer Wong, Rick Kiesewetter and Les Sinclair all equally guilty of this. If this showcase is anything to go by, I’d suggest that the Fringe is too short to spread your bets so thinly.

Laughing Horse @ The Free Sisters, until 25 Aug (not 12, 12, 19, 20), 1.15pm.
