John Hastings Ed2016

John Hastings is a bit of a tornado – he bursts in, whips you up and takes you along for the ride. He is loud and dramatic as he recounts a very strange set of circumstances. It’s Christmas 2015 and John is at home in Canada to renew his UK visa – he likes it here, despite our strange habits and choice of political leaders. In one testing day though, he has to deal with a bust up between friends and a murder. Hastings is mercilessly funny and his delivery is wonderful, but at times he lingers a little too long on some of the build up, before arriving at the ultimate denouement.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 29 Aug.
