Tim Vine: Sunset Milk Idiot (Bound & Gagged Comedy)

By | Published on Saturday 12 August 2017

Tim Vine is one of the most consistent performers at the Fringe, and I could almost have written this review without even seeing his latest offering. You know what you’re getting with his shows: a non-stop series of puns, with convoluted set-ups, home-made props and silly songs that will either make you laugh or groan. As ever, the pace never lets up from the moment Tim walks on stage with a large ice cream on his head. This won’t appeal to everyone: if you don’t like puns then this could be a painful hour. Although this year’s show doesn’t quite reach the heights of some of his earlier ones, he’s still one of the best quick-fire comedians in the business.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 27 Aug.
