Will Adamsdale – Borders

By | Published on Sunday 31 August 2014

Will Adamsdale is a man plagued by middle class guilt, back-pains and writers block. His latest show sees him traverse these issues through the demonstratively big concept of borders; borders of countries, borders of time and even borders between individuals. The show starts off with a strong dissection and examination of this concept as Adamsdale explores the relationship between the audience and performer. As the show continues however, it is made clear that his ideas and threads never quite come together. Overall, the comedian’s musings and ideas on this broad subject are unable to offer any real insight or satisfying conclusions. The musical breaks, although funny, seem to serve as padding for a show that is still developing and hasn’t found its feet yet.

Underbelly Cowgate, until 24 Aug.
