Robin Morgan: Free Man (So Comedy by arrangement with Troika)

Robin Morgan

With his attempts to conquer the Welsh death metal scene behind him, all Robin Morgan was hoping for by the end of 2014 was that his girlfriend would say yes. But she didn’t. In his début Fringe hour, Morgan takes us through the proposal ‘story’ he so desperately wanted to create. While not the most riotous of stand-up routines, his love story with a twist certainly captures the hearts of the audience. Flashbacks to Morgan’s youth win some good laughs, and while always softly spoken in his delivery, he is at the same time wonderfully cheeky and engaging, ensuring we never lose interest in the story he has to tell – even when we think we know the ending.

Just The Tonic @ The Caves, until 28 Aug.
