ED2012 Comedy Review: Erich McElroy – The Brit Identity (Bound And Gagged Comedy)

ED2012 4/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

Queuing. Sycophantically apologizing when someone bumps into you. Rambling on about the war. Erich McElroy is here to explore all of these renowned British stereotypes. The Brit Identity is a charming concept, and will have you laughing at yourself and your national idiosyncrasies, though McElroy is more than willing to make fun of his homeland too. An American by birth, but British at heart, McElroy passed the British citizenship test four years ago. He loves mocking us jolly brits; and explores many bizarre British traditions such as Guy Fawkes Night. This show will have you giggling all the way through as it focuses on what we love to do the most: take the piss.

Pleasance Courtyard, 1-27 Aug, 4.45pm.
