Chris Kent

Chris Kent is back in Edinburgh for a fourth year, this time with tales of his recent wedding. For the majority of the show his anecdotal comedy makes for easy, relaxed listening, but there’s always an awful lot of build-up. Kent’s deadpan delivery is good, but the show lacks pace at times and would benefit from interspersing some quicker stories (a onesie related incident went down particularly well). Compared to some other comedians, whose “themes” are practically non-existent, he does well to keep his show on a recognisable track, rarely deviating from his subject matter. Apparently, he never intended his disastrous honeymoon to become the butt of his jokes, but he’s certainly made the best of it.

Assembly George Square, until 31 Aug.
