Stand-Up Tragedy (Stand-Up Tragedy / PBH’s Free Fringe)

By | Published on Wednesday 14 August 2013

You’ve heard of stand-up comedy, now here’s stand-up tragedy, an eclectic mix of performances ranging through music, poetry, spoken word, comedy and the downright odd, with the intention of making you feel sad, think or smile. The line-up changes every night but the theme of tragedy, whether they decide to take it seriously or have a bit of fun with it, remains. Unfortunately one or two of the acts on the night I went must have missed the memo, as even with leaving room for poetic interpretation, their set had nothing to do with tragedy! This aside, the atmosphere of the evening was vibrant and there were some excellent acts keeping the audience hanging on their every word, or making them seemingly wet themselves with laughter.

The Fiddler’s Elbow, until 14 Aug, 6.30pm.
