Kyle Kinane – Ghost Pizza Party (Soho Theatre and United Talent Agency)

Kyle Kiane

The Fringe is getting on a bit and Kyle Kinane is tired, worn down by the excessive whimsy that is Edinburgh in August. Among the artistic cornucopia on offer, he expresses doubt over the worth of stand-up comedy. This leads into thoughts about his own performance anxiety, expressed through the idea of quantum leaping (look it up – it’s exactly what he means) into other (marginally) more “worthwhile” jobs. Not a soldier or a doctor, but a truck driver reversing round a corner, or a Japanese restaurant chef, working in open view. There’s nothing to do with ghosts or pizzas – in fact it’s basically a 30 minute lead up to a gag about crabs’ legs. Happily, it’s a good one.

Underbelly Cowgate, until 30 Aug.
