Punchline recommends Harvey, Garvey and The Kane

Words by Suzy Romer Harvey, Garvey and Kane are a smart sketch group who allow you to sit back, relax and enjoy the ride. It’s always nice to see three chaps take to the stage in suits but these men can become anyone and anything with no costume changes and virtually no props. We areContinue reading “Punchline recommends Harvey, Garvey and The Kane”

Punchline recommends Ian D Montfort’s Midday Séance

Words by Suzy Romer Here’s some unusual advice for a comedy show: when you go to see Ian D Montfort, try to sit near the front. This comic creation is a walking, talking spectacle in himself, to the extent that it’s difficult to believe he’s not real. Every smirk, grimace, raised eyebrow and self-conscious flickContinue reading “Punchline recommends Ian D Montfort’s Midday Séance”

Punchline Recommends Carl Donnelly: Now That’s What I Carl Donnelly Vol.6

Words by Suzy Romer By the time Carl Donnelly formally introduces himself to the audience, he’s already made friends with us. His relaxed style and lack of pretension make him an instant hit.

Edinburgh Fringe Review: The Pin

Words by Hannah Clapham-Clark The Pin are a sketch double act comprising of Ben Ashenden, a bespectacled live-wire erring on the side of simple and Alexander Owen, the constantly frustrated straight man who believes he is destined for greater things. These are, of course, just personas (we hope!) who link the show’s sketches together inContinue reading “Edinburgh Fringe Review: The Pin”

Edinburgh Festival 2013 preview: an interview with Tom Toal

Edinburgh Festival is fast approaching, and as the line ups, headliners and most anticipated new acts are announced, I thought I’d get in on the action. After last year’s Fringe, I only managed to squeeze in 67 shows, but I did see some cracking comedians that are bound to make an even bigger and betterContinue reading “Edinburgh Festival 2013 preview: an interview with Tom Toal”
