Nick Bowling Laughs In The Face Of Death For 45 Minutes And Then Asks Him Politely To Leave (Nick Bowling / Free Festival)

By | Published on Saturday 24 August 2013

A playful presentation-style set on the truth about facing death; how to evade it, how to plan a funeral and which font to choose for your headstone. Delivered with dry wit, underscored by some genuine honesty, Bowling covers all the bases for the road to the afterlife with his own observations and esteemed PowerPoint presentation. The concept of the show is clever, not because dealing with death through stand-up at the Fringe is original, but because of the way it’s done. Bowling keeps the laughs coming and manages to stay light-hearted throughout despite the deathly details. If you enjoy well crafted comedy given by a confident comic then this is the show for you.

Laughing Horse @ Free Sisters, until 25 Aug (not 21), 1.30pm.
