Simon Feilder – All The Things I’m Not (Simon Feilder)

By | Published on Wednesday 20 August 2014

With the right audience, or perhaps just a slightly larger one, this show would be twice as enjoyable, and yet it’s already pretty good. Simon Feilder has put together an extremely slick, well-oiled routine with some impressively creative ideas and he’s clearly desperate to make this a success. Despite the lack of traditional stand-up material, Feilder’s meticulous preparation, self-awareness and raw enthusiasm still provides the laughs. For all its positives though, this is a performance yet to find its niche, leaving some audience members amused, if a little puzzled. If you’re a fan of comedy but also yearn for more of an introspective, chaotic journey through the mind of a self confessed man-child, then this is the ideal show for you.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 25 Aug.
