Milo Edwards: Pindos (Milo Edwards)

By | Published on Sunday 18 August 2019

Following the very recent death of his father, Milo Edwards resists the temptation to do a ‘dead Dad show’ and instead presents an entertaining and informative account of his three years in Russia, the last two as a stand-up. Using his background studying languages, he focuses in particular on the linguistic problems English speakers face (you’ll never think of crayfish in the same way again!) The narrative is skilfully put together and well delivered, though he tries to pack too much in. A diversion into Brexit and 9/11 causes the performance to drift off course – in a similar manner to the stray dogs launched into space by the Soviet space programme which frame his narrative. He ends with a touching tribute to his father.

Just The Tonic @ The Charteris Centre, until 25 Aug.
