I think Paul Foot might have reached peak absurdity with his new show; an impressive feat given the weird comedy he’s been dazzling us with for years. In ”Tis A Pity She’s A Piglet’, his targets range from couples on holiday to Oscar Pistorius, and even a stuffed toy monkey. He does it all in his unique style that skirts around the nonsensical, though of course he occasionally just throws in the nonsense too, for good measure. The vigour with which he performs often makes me wonder how he doesn’t end up pulling a muscle. For the devoted Foot-fan, this new material is a treat. For the rest, take heed: it is seriously eccentric.

Underbelly Cowgate, until 28 Aug.
