Quote from: Purple Toupee on August 04, 2022, 10:15:53 PMSaw a bunch of preview shows over the last two days, probably obvious ones to recommend but Tim Key and Patti Harrison were the two best by far.
Quote from: greencalx on August 03, 2022, 08:28:13 AMAre they any good? In previous years I have found their posters to be unreasonably irritating - even by the standard of Fringe posters - but this year's is not so bad...
Quote from: Malcy on August 04, 2022, 09:52:08 PMCan anyone recommend shows for a 7 year old in the latter half of the month? Was hoping to use that as an excuse to see Basil Brush but not able as he's a first half of the monther :(EDIT - Basil not the child
Quote from: Crabwalk on August 05, 2022, 06:53:54 AMI think their poster this year is irritating too but I saw their preview last night and had a great time. Nothing mind-blowing in form or content, but solid sketches performed with a lot of charm, great audience work, in a venue with an exceptional ceiling.Performance 8/10Ceiling 9/10(Edit: I'm talking about Hog, Cling Film and Fudge here or whatever they're called. That name just won't stick.)
Quote from: Crabwalk on August 05, 2022, 07:05:47 AMOh, last night I also saw Camille O'Sullivan for the first time in 13 years and she's still heartbreaking and hilarious. the crowd was full of seriously befuddled old folks though who came expecting Radio 2 MOR balladry and they did not want to join in singing Nick Cave's 'Ship Song' or have Camille stroke their heads while tearfully singing about the Weimar.
Quote from: the science eel on August 05, 2022, 07:20:44 AMsee...this is what I don't get about the Fringe. Who's going to these shows, what do they expect? 90% of the acts are unknowns. How is it successful? How had you heard of Camille O'S?
Quote from: the science eel on August 05, 2022, 07:58:02 AMAh, OK. It was a genuine question, fwiw. I'm here every summer teaching for the uni, and see all these billboards going up in early August for all these acts and I've hardly heard of any of them - and yet the streets are THRONGED! it's a bit of an odd one.
Quote from: CaledonianGonzo on August 05, 2022, 07:00:41 AMHaving seen their poster last night, can comfirm that the guy who pulls the face in the posters is pulling the face he pulls.
Quote from: greencalx on August 05, 2022, 03:46:23 PMI think there must be more than one poster. The one I saw did not have the face-pulling.
Quote from: edwardfog on August 06, 2022, 08:25:04 AMJulia Masli rules and that show is wonderful. Does she qualify for a newcomer nod given that she performed her last two shows under "Julia Masli and the Duncan Brothers"? I guess if Tom Parry can qualify then why not...
Quote from: Crabwalk on August 05, 2022, 06:53:54 AMCeiling 9/10
Quote from: kitsofan34 on August 06, 2022, 01:09:33 PMAnyone got any suggestions for 19:30? Olga Koch has cancelled.
Quote from: CaledonianGonzo on August 06, 2022, 07:00:12 AMOne hugely performative over-laugher sat right behind me who was in on the joke and wanted everyone to know that he got it. But he'd started howling 5 minutes before she even came out on stage.
