ED2012 Comedy Review: Josh Widdicombe – The Further Adventures Of… (Off the Kerb Productions)

ED2012 4/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

After his runaway success at last year’s Festival, Fosters’ Newcomer nominee Josh Widdicombe had a lot to live up to with his follow-up show. However, it’s safe to say he easily surpasses these high expectations. Widdicombe’s skill is that he takes the most mundane everyday things and turns them into hilarious stories. The audience are in stitches as they sympathise with his awkward experiences at cash machines and fancy restaurants and his interaction with that audience is also incredibly funny. Because he focuses on normal things that normal people do, anyone who sees this show can enjoy it. It also means that he doesn’t rely or crassness or being offensive to get people laughing. Classic observational stand up at its best.

Pleasance Courtyard, 1-26 Aug (not 13, 23), 7.00pm
