Chris Martin – Responsibilliness (Phil McIntyre Entertainments / Aura Talent Ltd)

By | Published on Wednesday 13 August 2014

More into Yahoo Answers than Wikipedia, Chris Martin is mainly interested in the inane questions web-users ask, rather than in any actual trivia the net can provide. Though he did inform us that the McDonalds staff rating system now rewards a maximum of four stars, rather than the former five. Quite how a Big Mac seller might earn these stars is a (very) loose theme for the show, punctuating a series of expertly delivered life stories, with a little drama here and there, and plenty of big laughs throughout (even and especially with his “shit routine”). Whether he earns his four McDonalds stars I won’t say, but Martin easily gets four of mine (though we do still mark out of five).

Pleasance Courtyard, until 24 Aug.
