Paul Foot – Words (IMWP)

By | Published on Thursday 22 August 2013

Want to hear a man in a silver suit rant about toast for precisely three and a half minutes? Paul Foot is the man for you, pushing the absurd to its absolute extreme. Whilst this bizarre comedian will not be to everyone’s taste, there is deliciously funny material throughout. It is Foot’s performance that holds this set together, even able to turn a walk-out into a hilarious, if insensitive, monologue on the etiquette of seating choices and hearing problems. The whole show is scheduled down to a tee, as Foot proudly explains before kicking off, with exactly two minutes spent explaining why life is a palaver, and 5.8 minutes of nonsensical word formations intended to insult audience members. Completely ridiculous.

Underbelly Cowgate, until 25 Aug (not 12), 7.30pm.
