Three recommended shows to see on Wednesday 22 Aug…

Angry Alan | Underbelly Cowgate | 3.20pm (pictured)
“Penelope Skinner’s monologue examines the way the internet allows people to prey on others’ insecurities and push extremist agendas”, our reviewer explains of this recommended theatre show. “Skinner’s writing is mostly witty and wryly observant, drawing out the nuances of contemporary gender politics – and a lot of unexpected laughs too”.

Revelations | Summerhall | 5.40pm
“James Rowland is the perfect storyteller”, declares our 5/5 review of this show. “Funny, engaging, self-effacing yet cleverly perceptive”, it adds, “there wasn’t a moment where he didn’t have the audience entirely with him”. Highly recommended.

Alice Fraser: Ethos | Underbelly Bristo Square | 7.55pm
And finally a comedy tip. “Fraser can’t resist seeing how far she can push things”, our reviewer reports. As a result, “some material, especially on #MeToo, simply elicits stunned gasps. You can’t quite believe she said that, and neither can she”. All in all: “it’s a bloody good time”.
