The Inane Chicanery Of A Certain Adam GC Riches (Tigco)

By | Published on Friday 25 August 2017

Spending an hour in the company of a certain Adam Riches will leave you feeling slightly weird and exhausted, but only in the best possible way. Avoid the front row if you don’t want to become a victim of this intense hour, which is filled with outlandish, eccentric and downright ridiculous character-driven comedy sketches. Particular highlights from this set include a calligrapher with no arms but a deep love of handwriting, a Gerard Butler spoof, and a man with unusual mouth organ playing methods. The skits are utterly absurd, and undoubtedly farcical, but it’s his sheer unrelenting energy and enthusiasm that ultimately make ‘The Inane Chicanery’ a comedic goldmine.

Pleasance Dome, until 27 Aug.
