Eleanor Morton – Allotted Mucking Around Time (Eleanor Morton)

Eleanor Morton

The innocence of youth makes ‘Allotted Mucking Around Time’ a wonderfully whimsical experience. Eleanor Morton, a young Scot, combines stand up and cheeky sketches with great effect. Part psychic, part tour guide, she certainly keeps us on our toes. She amusingly depicts young city life, house party dilemmas, feminism and her bizarre relationship with her pets – even the regular techie genuinely laughs. Morton’s vivid imagination and variety of entertaining accents are fabulous. With insight beyond her years, she successfully and inoffensively nods at the Scottish referendum and Margaret Thatcher. Gagging on the dirty word “London”, she uses her Edinburgh heritage to her advantage. Appealing and natural, Morton delivers a very accessible, very British comedy show.

The Stand Comedy Club, until 30 Aug.
