Felicity Ward: Busting A Nut (Phil McIntyre Entertainments Presents)

By | Published on Sunday 12 August 2018

Having taken a year off from the Fringe, Felicity Ward is back with a sparky show that merrily swaggers along without a specific theme; instead she fills in the gaps for us on what she’s been up to in her time away. Holidays, getting married, living with the in-laws (who, she gleefully informs us, will be in the audience the following night) are all playfully explored with superb wit and a delivery that is both manic and measured. She unapologetically jokes about her nearest and dearest, but it’s all drawing on a love of their quirks and on how, in reality, she’s got just as many of her own. It’s a solid, polished hour of entertainment that proves why Ward remains a Fringe favourite.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 26 Aug.
