Three recommended shows to see on Wednesday 15 Aug…

The Artist | Assembly Roxy | 4.30pm
In this physical show “everything is perfectly planned to deliver hoots of laughter and squeals of delight from the audience”, reckons our reviewer. “Thom Monckton is an assured, confident performer”, they add, “and it feels like he’s having a lot of fun playing the part, too”. So join in the fun!

Elf Lyons: ChiffChaff | Pleasance Dome | 6.50pm
From the comedy programme, Elf Lyons’ latest show – our reviewer explains – “is a musical about the economy, delivering her own hilarious version of expertise”. We add: “If this were how economics was taught to us in school I think we’d all have achieved top grades”.

(even) HOTTER | Bedlam Theatre | 9.30pm (pictured)
Finally some recommended theatre. “Using a series of interviews with women and trans people about their bodies, Mary Higgins and Ell Potter have weaved together a show about embarrassment, insecurity, love and dancing”, our reviewer explains. “Gradually they reveal more and more of themselves to us, at times physically leaning on each other for support, committing wholly to being courageously, profoundly honest”.
