Michael Legge

Three recommended shows for Thursday at the Edinburgh Festival 2015.

Michael Legge
So, our Week Two issue hit the streets today and, of course, we must recommend this week’s cover star Michael Legge. Says our reviewer this year: “The hour simply flies by, packed with strong routines building on the theme of the regret you can feel after meeting your heroes. One thing’s for certain: you won’t regret meeting Michael Legge”.
The Stand, until 30 Aug.

Nish Kumar – Long Word… Long Word… Blah Blah Blah… I’m so Clever
“In the sweatiest room at the Fringe, Nish Kumar puts on an outstanding display of middle class, sympathetic outrage” says we. “It’s probably fair to say that Edinburgh is currently overpopulated with comedians lamenting the idiocy of politicians and British society at large, and to an already convinced audience. But Kumar is self aware enough and, most importantly, funny enough to stand out above the rest”. Go see.
Pleasance Courtyard, until 30 Aug.

“How much fun can you have with one suitcase, some clothes and an audience? Flabbergast Theatre, creators of Boris and Sergey, prove that the limits are almost endless with this irresistible show” reads our 5/5 glowing review. “Seeing ‘Tatterdemalion’ is a beautiful and hilarious experience that will stay with you – clowning has never been so enchanting or absorbing”.
Assembly Roxy, until 31 Aug.
