Wayne Thallon – Procreation (Veritas GB Ltd)

By | Published on Monday 19 August 2013

This show is about – you guessed it – procreation; so be prepared for a lot of penis jokes, including a memorable story about sperm donation. Edinburgh local Wayne Thallon opens up about his struggles to conceive; and his charitable gig is to help those born with the heart condition from which his daughter suffers. Thallon’s style is anecdotal, although he also tackles some more general topics, such as the medical TV genre. The style of humour is laddish and accessible, and you will also learn some new and exciting Edinburgh phrases in this show. But at its heart, the message is about family. A wonderful comedian with a straightforward and very funny act that is laugh-out-loud, often crude and occasionally extremely emotive.

Just The Tonic at The Caves, until 25 Aug (not 13), 9.00pm.
