Milo Edwards: Voicemail (Impatient Productions)

By | Published on Saturday 27 August 2022

Let’s hope you like dark humour? Milo Edwards delivers what is an incredibly bleak and mostly monotone set that, remarkably, works brilliantly. It’s an hour of non-stop flowing topics all connecting and dealing with time. The jokes are incredibly dark, and the themes being discussed are difficult ones, yet he never truly crosses the wrong lines: from being 29 to dealing with loss, Milo creatively takes these tough life moments and uses them to come up with an excellently funny set. And even though it’s incredibly fast-paced, with topics sometimes changing mid-sentence, it never feels hard to follow, or as though it’s losing sight of its themes. Certainly a very distinctive show, that may not appeal to everyone, but for the right crowd it absolutely hits the mark.

Just The Tonic at the Mash House, until 28 Aug.
