Yianni In Think Big (Yianni / PBH’s Free Fringe)

By | Published on Wednesday 21 August 2013

What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail? For some it’s an easy question, for others it is a little harder. This comedy show is based on exploring ambition and aspiration, breaking down why people don’t achieve their dream. Yianni’s a very likeable and funny comedian with an interesting style, opening up a dialogue with the audience from early on and referring to it throughout almost as a second character. He earns big laughs, and offers some brilliant insights, using his experience to successfully improvise and not just stick to his material, which is always refreshing. Yianni has booked the biggest venue in Edinburgh – the EICC – for one night on the last weekend of the festival, because it’s a dream of his to do it, so he is clearly not afraid to put his money where his mouth is.

The Dram House, until 24 Aug, 4.45pm.
