Nick Cody Ed2016

If you’re looking for a light-hearted, inoffensive laugh, then Nick Cody is your man. ‘Come Get Some!’ features stories from the everyday life of a 28-year-old, white, heterosexual, Australian male comedian travelling the world. Jokes are frequent and human, quick ongoing reminders build up the humour without getting old. Cody owns the stage with a charming, relaxed delivery which draws audiences in with its friendly, familiar style. However, if you’re looking for something a bit dark, clever irony, or hard hitting satire then this might not be what you are looking for. Probably an excellent stand-up choice for a Fringe first timer, but veterans might exit feeling slightly disappointed.

Assembly George Square Studios, until 28 Aug.
