ED2012 Comedy Review: Activism Is Fun (Chris Coltrane / PBH’s Free Fringe)

ED2012 5/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

This is a political stand-up set of protest stories to inspire and delight. Coltrane pulls off a tricky task, humorously conveying a serious topic in an easily-digestible way, making for deliciously entertaining food for thought. Talking from a left-wing perspective, he discusses the problems facing British society today: recession, tax avoidance, the Tories and the ways in which peaceful protest can help tackle these problems. Irrespective of your political views, Coltrane is someone that I would recommend you see. He gives an exciting and exuberant performance which is as informative as it is funny. Walking out you feel not only that you want to make a difference, but that you can.
