George And Co (The Solo Tour) (George Dimarelos)

George and Co

A low-key opening from George Dimarelos sets the tone for the following 50 minutes. Gradually the Australian moves into his material but, though he is likable on stage, the show itself failed to really engage us. At times you could feel the audience agreeing with him, wondering where he was about to take us, only for him to shut the gate and wander down another path. Though he shows real promise, especially in a memorable routine discussing the etiquette of travelling Aussies, there were more nods than belly laughs here. Dimarelos clearly has talent and parts of the show are very well written, but the consistency is missing. Perhaps it will be achieved upon his next return to Edinburgh.

C nova until 31 Aug.
