Comedy Review: Red Raw at The Stand, 14 July, Edinburgh

15 Jul

While I’ve never ventured out to review comedy acts for this blog – there are just too many to cover I’m afraid – I did head to Edinburgh’s Stand comedy club last night to see Red Raw on behalf of the Edinburgh Evening News.

It’s a lengthy review, and needed to be to try and give everyone equal coverage. My favourite of the bunch was Vladimir McTavish, I said:

“Veteran comic Vladimir McTavish took to the stage with ease, his routine a sample of his 2008 Fringe show. Taking the story of Greyfriars Bobby as his starting point, a seemingly natural connection with Nelson Mandela by way of the Freedom of the City carried the hysterical audience along. As he pondered the amount of time it takes for a pub to be named after a mass murderer, McTavish’s brilliantly considered “Scottishness test” concluded a set that deserves searching out come the Festival.”

For the full review take a trip over to the Evening News website.
