Richard Brown – Art Is Easy (Richard Brown / PBH’s Free Fringe)

By | Published on Saturday 22 August 2015

Richard Brown

Richard Brown wants to offend everyone in his audience – a fact he’ll let you know right at the start of the show. This is the man from the Borders’ second year at the Fringe and it’s clear to see he’s found his voice with ‘Art Is Easy’. His passion is obvious from the very beginning and he holds the interest of his audience throughout. Though ranty at times, Brown is also often forthcoming in his apologies, confessing that the next bit may lose us – his live deconstruction of the show itself does make for some interesting moments. Overall, this afternoon show is a thought-provoking one – offensive in places whilst simultaneously challenging perceptions of offense itself.

Dragonfly, until 29 Aug.
