The Maydays – Confessions (EMX Management in association with The Maydays presents)

By | Published on Monday 12 August 2013

I’m guessing you have never expected your personal confessions to be read aloud in front of a room of strangers, for them then to be dissected and ripped apart by a comedy troupe – and I bet you never expected to like it. Yet here The Maydays are, making play of your dirty little secrets. Riffing from anonymous audience suggestions (submitted before the show) the group do hit their fair share of humdingers, but unfortunately seem to lack the stamina to keep their constructed scenarios going (evidenced by their quick fire round being the strongest section of the show) Still, it is a deliciously interesting idea, if one that is only very nearly pulled off.

Underbelly Cowgate, until 25 Aug (not 13), 2.20pm.
