Milo McCabe – Schiz (IMWP)

By | Published on Wednesday 21 August 2013

‘Schiz’ revolves around the chaotic inner workings of Milo’s McCabe’s mind, through the interesting concept of split personalities. And what a busy place his mind seems to be! Combined with a selection of short video clips, McCabe introduces us to a number of his eccentric characters. He begins strongly, with an energetic upper-class Wilko worker, kicking things off nicely with a dose of satirical humour and clever word play. However, although the characters certainly showcase Milo’s imaginative energy and creativity as a comic, a number of them (including his ‘Boring Facebook Friend’) eventually offer nothing more than a vaguely amusing spectacle. Overall – an interesting concept, undoubtedly entertaining, but nowhere near the realm of side-splitting.

Gilded Balloon Teviot, until 25 Aug (not 7, 13), 5.00pm.
