First Class (Chris Washington)

Chris Washington

In his first year at the Fringe, Chris Washington has decided to make a change – from delivering mail, to using his job as a basis for comedy. The title ‘First Class’ comes from a heckler at one of his shows, and rather aptly fits his tales of the last eight years as a postman. Washington’s delivery is assured, the Mancunian humorously derides his home town of Leigh while interacting frivolously with the small crowd. Half an hour of material is enough for this postman though, who seems to almost run out of ideas. His video raising awareness about tips for postmen is a limp conclusion and, while the mocking of a friend’s CV gets a laugh or two, it needs major improvements.

Cowgatehead, until 29 Aug.
