A one-man sketch show with a love story at its heart, Goose’s ‘Hydroberserker’ is as funny as it is sweet. The comedy duo are represented on stage by only one half of the equation, the exceedingly energetic and exceedingly sweaty Adam Drake, who carries the show on sheer force and charisma. Drake’s delivery is jittery but endearing, perfect for the role of romcom hero, but underneath the persona is a capable comedian who can deal with any odd curveball thrown at him by the audience participation. Helped by a live band, lighting cues and a projector adding visual gags, ‘Goose’ is a bombastic, fully sensory and ultimately romantic sketch show that will split your sides and pull at your heart strings.

Assembly George Square Gardens, until 28 Aug.
