Paul Foot (IMWP)

Paul Foot

Snappily dressed (by 1970s standards), Paul Foot performs with the kind of uncontrollable excitement of a child bursting to tell you a story. He fidgets about the stage, performing a selection of material from some of his previous tours, including an absurd, side-splitting tale of how to get revenge on a guest-house landlady. He’s a comedy whirlwind from the school of Spike Milligan, an exuberant raconteur who brings to life the sort of inner bizarreness that we all wish we could express, but don’t quite have the nerve. I’d like to think that he’s exactly the same in real-life as he is on stage. It’s risky to call someone unique, but Foot is certainly pretty close.

Underbelly Cowgate, until 30 Aug.
