Brett Goldsteine

Brett Goldstein is back after a year away from the Fringe. He spent last August at the Burning Man festival, and this show centres around his experiences there. He may not have “found himself” at the festival, but it did lead to some great material. Here, he has created a captivating narrative and a genuinely interesting take on several dark and often taboo subjects. Highlights include a routine discussing his involvement in “that TV appearance”, and a fresh approach towards the whole Operation Yewtree situation. Incredibly likable and hilarious throughout, Goldstein’s interaction with the audience was sparse but solid. ‘Burning Man’ is a show worth seeing, performed by a man who makes it all look very easy.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 31 Aug.
