ED2012 Comedy Review: Al Pitcher – Tiny Triumphs (Gilded Balloon in association with JBJ Management)

By | Published on Monday 20 August 2012

A lot of comedians like to generate material from their own pessimism, but Al Pitcher has a glass half-full mentality. His act is centred around celebrating the small triumphs everyone has in life, the funny sights we see on the way to work, and the amusingly awkward moments that happen to us all. He keeps the audience entertained with humour that is neither vulgar nor crude, and interacts with everyone present, getting more excited and personable as the show progresses. The act is accompanied by a slide-show full of pictures taken on a walk through Edinburgh, showing the funny things that normally might be missed on the rushed journey from A to B. He’s full of hilarious surprises.

Gilded Balloon Teviot, 1-26 Aug, 8.15pm.
