Tim FitzHigham – Hellfire (Brett Vincent for Get Comedy by arrangement with PBJ Management)

By | Published on Sunday 17 August 2014

History and comedy seem to have been a popular double act at the Fringe of recent years, but this show takes it to another level. ‘Hellfire’ is an eccentric and passionate look into one of the world’s most secret societies, nicely rounded out by Tim FitzHigham’s own frenetic style of stand-up. The show was not only hilarious, but incredibly intriguing too; it’s a feat that seems effortlessly achieved via the anecdotes of this veteran adventurer. His honest enthusiasm for the subject, and the energy he exudes as he bounces around the stage were a delight to witness. As the full-bellied laughs rang out, there wasn’t an audience member that left without a grin across their face. A truly entertaining show that may teach you something too!

Pleasance Dome, until 25 Aug.
