Yianni – Why Did The Chicken Cross The Line? (Yianni)

By | Published on Tuesday 11 August 2015


ThreeWeeks favourite Yianni returns to Edinburgh with a witty show exploring that ‘line’ that comedy can cross. Prior to a gig, he received an email that requested he specifically not do gags about paedophilia, rape or Lady Diana, and that got him thinking about the ways in which people react differently to jokes. An engaging performer, Yianni questions where the line is, and how it shifts from one person to the next in different contexts. He treads the line (or does he?) and really makes you wonder about why we find some things risqué. The show is full of insightful, sharp social commentary that takes nothing too seriously and had the audience in fits of laughter.

The Stand, until 30 Aug.
