CoM­EDy GARETH RiCHARDs: sTAnD up bE­TwEEn sonGs Plea­Sance court­yard (Venue 33) HHHHH

The Scotsman - - Fringereviews Hotshow -

GARETH Richards’ de­liv­ery is so down­beat he makes Nor­man Lovett look like Bren­don Burns.

He kicks off with some “any­one been to Bournemouth?” ma­te­rial and the “now you get plugs on trains” ob­ser­va­tions beloved of sev­eral co­me­di­ans this year be­fore go­ing on to talk about death and his fam­ily at some length, and with some rep­e­ti­tion.

Songs Dave the Fridge and Song for Mum, and one of­fer­ing ad­vice to sin­gle ladies, are sub­Boothby Graf­foe whimsy. On the plus side, he has a killer line (about Jade Goody), a hi­lar­i­ous take on ba­bies, and an in­spired way with a metaphor.


Un­til 30 Au­gust. To­day 6pm.
