Choosing shows from the comedy section of the Fringe Programme can be daunting. If you want to sample lots of acts before committing to anyone’s full gig then ‘Afternoon Delight’, with its changing selection of comedy acts from Just the Tonic venues, is for you. Various sketches, characters, songs and stand-up were united in this highly enjoyable collection, which included a memorable pass-the-parcel sketch from the Leeds Tealights and spot-on musical gags from Anthony King. Naturally with such a format, the appeal of the show you happen to see is down to chance, but if every day yields acts as thoroughly entertaining as the ones I encountered, you’re in for a truly delightful treat.
Just the Tonic at The Caves, 2-26 Aug (not 14), 1.15pm.
