Mr Ambiguousness (Ben Norris / PBH’s Free Fringe)

By | Published on Saturday 24 August 2013

‘Mr Ambiguousness’ is Ben Norris’s first show at the Edinburgh Fringe since 1998. He says he’s happy to be here, and as he’s a father of triplets that comes as no surprise. Norris works the audience remarkably well, stating from the start that he’s going to treat the show as a late night one, rather than the quiet, early evening gig he’s stuck with. In a show where the audience is undeniably hard to please, Norris turns everything to his advantage and improvises with quick wit when things go wrong. His show is far from the ‘car crash’ he predicted would be written about in the review, though the rap ending does fall somewhat flat and leaves the audience slightly baffled.

The Dram House, until 24 Aug (not 14), 7.15pm.
